LOWELL - The Dodge County sheriff says that a 65-year-old man from Reeseville is dead following a two-vehicle crash just before noon on Tuesday.

State troopers believe a man driving an SUV crossed the center line at State Highway 16/60 near County Highway K around 11 a.m. Tuesday and smashed into a delivery truck.

The driver of the SUV died instantly.  Flight for Life took the 62-year-old delivery truck driver to a local hospital.  His current status isn't known.

Crews had to shut down Highway 16/60 for a few hours, but it has since reopened.

State troopers won't say for sure if speed was a factor, but they do point out the SUV shouldn't have left its lane.

Authorities are working on reconstructing the accident scene Tuesday afternoon.
