The crash happened around 4:45 p.m. on Highway 94 about three miles east of Ellicott. Troopers said a Cadillac CTS was eastbound in the westbound lane when it collided head-on with an International truck that was westbound in the westbound lane.

The driver of the Cadillac died on the scene.

The driver of the International, a 27-year-old man from Yoder, was not injured. Troopers said he was wearing his seatbelt.
