Barnesville, MN (WDAY TV) - A Wisconsin man is dead and another man injured after a crash between a truck and a semi on I-94 near Barnesville.

The State Patrol says the pick-up driver, 32-year-old Vincent O'Connor, died at the scene.

O'Connor was driving east when he lost control and hit the guardrail on the railroad overpass near mile marker 22.

His vehicle stalled in the east-bound lanes, and a semi broadsided it around 4:20 Monday morning.

State patrol says weather does not seem to be a factor in the accident.

Sgt. Jesse Grabow- MN State Patrol: “For whatever reason, the passenger vehicle involved in that crash had ended up broadside in traffic, then being struck a short while later by a semi.”

The driver of the semi, 63-year-old Bill Diesem of Dickinson, was taken to a Fargo hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
