The motor scooter was heading north when it was struck in the intersection by a westbound vehicle, according to the preliminary crash investigation. 

North and southbound traffic through the intersection is controlled by a stop sign and east and westbound traffic does not have traffic control at the intersection, police say. 

The 14-year-old boy riding the scooter was taken to a hospital in Minneapolis with what were described as life-threatening injuries. The woman driving the vehicle was not hurt.
