A 23-year-old Barnum man is seriously injured after a two-vehicle crash in Solway Township late Tuesday night.

The State Patrol says the 23-year-old man was driving his 2009 Pontiac G6 westbound at the intersection of Highway 2 and Highway 194 around 11:45 when it went through a stop sign without stopping.

A Dodge Ram pulling a trailer heading westbound on Highway 194 then struck the Pontiac in a T-bone collision.  

The 23-year-old Barnum man was transported to a local hospital via ambulance with life threatening injuries. The patrol says he was wearing a seat belt.

The driver and the passenger in the Dodge Ram weren't injured.   

Proctor Police, St. Louis County Sheriff, Mayo Ambulance, Solway Rescue, and St. Louis County Rescue Squad responded to the scene.
