MERRILL, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a young child has been killed in a crash in northwestern Iowa.

The Sioux City Journal reports that 6-year-old Ayaan Ibrahn died in the Monday night crash at the intersection of Highway 75 and a city street in Merrill.

The Iowa State Patrol says the child was in a southbound sport utility vehicle driven by 38-year-old Mohamed Abdullahi-Mohamud, of Sioux City, when it went onto the highway shoulder, overcorrected and went into the northbound lanes, hitting a pickup truck nearly head-on.

Authorities say Abdullahi-Mohamud suffered life-threatening injuries. A 34-year-old person and a baby in the SUV suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The 33-year-old driver of the pickup also suffered serious injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
