The Iowa State Patrol says the collision occurred just west of Fredericksburg shortly before 3 p.m. A Hyundai Accent was turning off Highway 63 at the Highway 18 exit, but failed to yield at the stop sign and was struck broadside by a KW semi-tractor that was eastbound on 18.

Identities of the drivers and the person killed in the wreck have not been released pending notification of relatives.

The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office, Chickasaw County Rescue Squad, Fredericksburg Fire Department and Iowa Motor Vehicle Enforcement also assisted with the crash, which remains under investigation.
