Girl in stable condition after accident

Nine-year-old Elli Marie Parsons is in stable condition in a Duluth Hospital after being hit by a vehicle Monday afternoon in Ironwood.

The Ironwood Public Safety Department says Parsons was riding her bike at the intersection of Cloverland Drive and Lake Street.  She crossed the highway and was struck by an oncoming vehicle.

Preliminary investigations show the vehicle had the green light, and Parsons had crossed into oncoming traffic.

She was transported to Aspirus Grand View Hospital and later airlifted to Duluth.
