Three people were killed in an accident involving an SUV and a semi tractor-trailer Monday afternoon in Vermillion Township.

According to witnesses the SUV was ahead of the semi headed southwest on County Road 47 near Goodwin Avenue at 12:20 p.m. The witness told Dakota County Sheriff's deputies the SUV appeared to have slowed to make a wide turn when the semi hit it broadside.

After the collision the SUV rolled off the road and into a ditch. One occupant was thrown from the vehicle and all three occupants of the SUV were killed.

The sheriff's office and the Minnesota State Patrol are investigating the crash. The names of the victims have not yet been released.
