HOYT LAKES, Minn. - Three teens were hospitalized after a train struck a pickup truck east of Hoyt Lakes on Saturday afternoon.

About 4 p.m., a Dodge truck was traveling west on Skibo Road near Pine Street in Bassett Township when it was struck by a northbound CN train, the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office reported. Authorities believe the truck failed to stop at a stop sign at the tracks before it was hit. All three occupants of the truck - Tyler Tedrick, 19; Lonny Callender, 18; and a 14-year-old whom the Sheriff’s Office did not name - were taken to Essentia Health-Northern Pines in Aurora, but the Sheriff’s Office could not comment on the extent of their injuries Sunday.

The incident remains under investigation.
