The child was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver was extricated from the vehicle before being airlifted to an Eau Claire hospital for serious injuries. The driver of the dump truck was not injured.
No names have been released at this time.
The crash is being investigated by the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office and Wisconsin State Patrol.
