An Eagan man and Prior Lake boy died in the April 1 crash on Scott County Highway 21, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner announced Friday.

Wycliff Mose Chacha, 36, was driving when he and his passenger, 11-year-old Maxwell Araka Chacha, both died from multiple blunt-force injuries, the examiner’s office said. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office investigation continues.

The vehicle was going eastbound on 21 when it struck a freight truck turning south onto Natchez Avenue from the westbound turning lane, according to a previous Scott County news release.

A juvenile male in the Chacha vehicle’s backseat was transported to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis; the county hasn’t identified him. The freight truck driver, a Maplewood man, had no serious injuries.
