The Iowa State Patrol says a Sioux City man died following a crash Thursday afternoon in western Iowa’s Monona County. 27-year old Craig Jacob Aasen was pronounced dead at Burgess Hospital in Onawa.

Officials say Aasen was traveling north on Interstate 29 just before 3-p-m., when the 2001 Ford F-350 pickup he was driving went out of control a few miles north of the Onawa exit. The pickup crossed the median and came to rest on its side in the west ditch of southbound I-29.

Aasen was ejected from the vehicle as it rolled. The Patrol’s report did not indicate if he was wearing a seatbelt.
