PARRISH, Fla. (WWSB) - Two people were critically injured Wednesday morning in a crash near Parrish, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Investigators say a Volkswagen sedan driven by a 16-year-old Bradenton boy was traveling north on North Rye Road at about 7:20 a.m., approaching the intersection of Rutland Road.

Troopers say the sedan went through the stop sign at the intersection and into the path of a semitrailer heading southeast on Rutland Road.

The teen and his 44-year-old female passenger were critically injured. The truck driver received minor injuries.
