Man Killed in Two-Vehicle Crash in Chickasaw County Identified

Authorities have identified a Nashua man as the person killed in a two-vehicle crash in Chickasaw County Wednesday afternoon.

The Iowa State Patrol says the collision occurred just west of Fredericksburg shortly before 3 p.m. A Hyundai Accent driven by 68-year-old Thomas Kolodjiez 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 driven by 50-year-old Jason Woodring of Fredericksburg that was eastbound on 18. Kolodjiez died from his  injuries suffered in the wreck.

The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office, Chickasaw County Rescue Squad, Fredericksburg Fire Department and Iowa Motor Vehicle Enforcement also assisted at the site.

The incident remains under investigation.
