Reportedly, the 1978 Dodge pickup truck driven by Hedeen was heading southbound on 169 when he crossed the center line into the path of a 2001 International semi operated by John Studer of Rolfe.
Hedeen was thrown from his vehicle and was rushed to Trinity Regional Medical Center where he died of his injuries. Studer was also taken to the hospital for treatment. The Webster County Sheriff’s Department assisted in the investigation.
