Larchwood, Iowa — A Larchwood man has died as the result of a crash near Larchwood.
The Iowa State Patrol reports that about 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, 2018, 31-year-old Benjamin Dieters of Larchwood was driving a 2002 Ford pickup northbound on Cleveland Avenue, three miles south and a mile east of Larchwood. Seventy-four year-old Kenneth Wulf of Larchwood was eastbound on 170th Street in a 2016 Ford pickup.
The report says that Wulf ran a stop sign and entered the intersection. Dieters’ pickup hit the back passenger side of Wulf’s pickup. This caused Wulf’s pickup to roll and come to a rest 200 feet east of the intersection. Dieters’ pickup continued north, being pushed by its trailer, rolled and came to a rest in the northeast ditch. The pickup and trailer jack knifed causing it to roll. The trailer also crushed the cab compartment area of Dieters’ pickup.
Dieters was pronounced dead on the scene. Wulf suffered very minor injuries to his hand and arm. He refused medical treatment and was released.
The Ford pickups sustained about $20,000 each in damages, and both were totaled.
The trooper says the Lyon County Sheriff’s Department and the Larchwood EMS Squad and Larchwood Fire Department assisted at the scene.
