A 16-year old is in the hospital with serious injuries after a two-vehicle collision where he was struck by a semi.

This happened Friday at the intersection of US-93 and State Highway 25.

16-year-old Eden resident Kyle Green was driving a Ford Taurus eastbound on Highway 25. Police say, he stopped at the intersection, and tried to cross it when an international semi struck his vehicle.

35-year-old burley resident Jason Hitzeman was driving that semi.
He was transported to Saint Lukes Magic Valley Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

Green had to be life-flighted to St. Lukes.

Police say two other juvenile girls were in the car with Green, but they were treated and released with minor injuries.

The crash is still under investigation.
