It happened shortly after 8:15 a.m. at a rural intersection about three miles north of Agency. A State Patrol report shows a pickup driven by 18-year-old Casey Jarmes of Sigourney failed to stop at a stop sign and was hit in the passenger side by an oncoming semi. Jarmes was injured, while his 16-year-old brother, Cale — a passenger in the truck — was killed. The semi driver, 61-year-old Joseph Snakenberg of Webster, also died at the scene.
After hitting the pickup, the semi hit a tree, and both vehicles ended up in the ditch.
