TOWN OF CENTER—An Evansville teen is in critical but stable condition after a Sunday night two-vehicle crash resulted in multiple injuries.

The crash, which closed Highway 14 for nearly three hours, remains under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol.

The accident occurred three-tenths of a mile west of North Fox Road in the town of Center, according to a Rock County Sheriff's Office news release.

According to the release, a 16-year-old female with an instructional driving permit was driving west at 9:27 p.m. on Highway 14 when a vehicle, driven by Arick A. Vance, 17, Janesville, crossed the centerline and nearly struck her 2008 Dodge Avenger head on.

Vance's 2003 GMC Sonoma rolled over and stopped in the middle of the road, trapping him inside. He was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center, Janesville, where he was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.

Vance will be cited for operating left of center, according to the release.

The three passengers in the 16-year-old's vehicle, which ended up in the north ditch, included her mother, Shanda L. Miller, 42, and her sisters, ages 12 and 11. All received minor injuries and were expected to be treated and released from Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center, the release stated.

Emergency crews from Footville, Evansville, Janesville and Mercy's MD-1 emergency field vehicle assisted deputies at the scene.
