The Iowa State Patrol reports that about 2:55 PM on Friday, 16-year-old Logan Kruse of Inwood was driving a 1999 Pontiac northbound on Highway 182, a mile north of Inwood. Fifty-five year-old Dan Olson of Marshall, Minnesota was southbound on 182 in a 2016 International semi.
The report says that Kruse drove onto the east shoulder, then crossed left of center into the southbound lane and into the path of the semi.
The car and semi collided head-on in the southbound lane and both came to rest in the west ditch. Kruse was dead at the scene, while Olson was taken to the Canton-Inwood Hospital in Canton, South Dakota.
