One person was killed during a crash between a semi and a pickup truck this (Monday) morning, in Carroll County. The Iowa State Patrol says 80-year old Stanley Ewoldt, of Manning, died when his pickup crossed the center line of Highway 141 and collided head-on with a semi owned by Campbell Trucking, in Guthrie Center, and driven by 63-year old David Webber, of Guthrie Center.

Officials say Webber was traveling west on Highway 141 in a 1997 International tractor-trailer, while Ewoldt was traveling east, when the crash happened southwest of Templeton, at around 8:10-a.m.  Following the impact, both vehicles came to rest in the south ditch.

Ewoldt died at the scene. Officials say he was wearing a seatbelt.  Webber was not injured. The accident remains under investigation, by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa State Patrol.
