TAMA COUNTY, Iowa — The Iowa State Patrol responded to a two-vehicle crash at 10:31 a.m. Thursday.

Troopers say it happened at the intersection of Highway V18 and 300th Street, just north of Vining.

A crash report on the State Patrol’s website says a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer and a 1996 Chevrolet 2500 truck both veered to the east side of the road, where they collided on the shoulder.

The report says 58-year-old Dennis Ohlen, of Chelsea, was driving the Blazer and died in the crash. It does not indicate if the driver of the 2500 truck was injured.

The Iowa State Patrol still is investigating the crash, and the report does not say if any charges have been filed.
