The Highway Patrol says 67-year-old Jan Andringa was westbound in an SUV around 12:15pm, while 35-year-old Lance Mennenga, also of Castlewood, was southbound and driving a semi-truck.

Troopers say Andringa had a stop sign but drove into the intersection and was struck by Mennenga's truck.

Andringa, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from his vehicle and died at the scene.
Mennenga was not wearing a seat belt but suffered minor injuries.
