A 44-year-old truck driver was killed in a crash on Highway 20 near Duncombe on Thursday afternoon. The Iowa State Patrol identified the victim as Gary M. Sulsberger of Rodney.
Reportedly a 2003 Frieghtliner tractor trailer driven by Sulsberger was traveling eastbound when he drove into the median and went between two guardrails. The semi then struck the drainage ditch embankment where it landed.
Sulsberger was taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center in Fort Dodge where he died of his injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
