UPDATE - Montanye upgraded to serious condition

New Prague High School senior Tyler Montanye has been upgraded to serious condition at North Memorial Hospital following a car-semi collission Monday morning. The following is the latest story as of noon Tuesday:
A New Prague High School senior was injured Monday morning when his car collided with a semi on Highway 13 north of New Richland, in Waseca County. 
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Tyler Joseph Montanye, 18, was driving a 2003 Buick Century and was southbound when he crossed the centerline and struck a 2001 Peterbilt Semi driven by James  Edward Enevoldsen, 66, of New Richland. The crash occurred at approximately 7:42 a.m. 
Montanye was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale for what the state patrol described as life-threatening injuries. On Monday afternoon, a hospital spokesperson said he was in critical condition. By Tuesday morning, he had been upgraded to serious condition. 
The driver of the truck was not hurt in the collision. 
Montanye is a captain of the New Prague High School football team, and scored two touchdowns for the Trojans in their homecoming win over Rochester John Marshall on Friday. He was also a member of the Homecoming Royal Court and a member of the school’s wrestling team. School officials said they got word from Tyler’s mother, Mandy, on Monday that Tyler suffered a broken leg and head trauma and was preparing to undergo surgery.  
Trojan football coach Jake Norby said on Tuesday that he had been told Tyler was alert and responsive, but would likely be facing several more surgeries on his leg.
