Authorities say they responded to the accident on Vermillion trail near Colvin Township just after 12:45 p.m. Friday.

The driver of the vehicle went off the road and into the ditch, causing extensive damage to the front of the pickup truck. 

The girl was taken to Essentia - Northern Pines Hospital in Aurora by ambulance and then airlifted to a Duluth hospital. 

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
