NORA SPRINGS, Iowa (AP) - Iowa troopers say one person has died and another has been injured after a van crashed into a construction vehicle on a highway.

The Iowa State Patrol reports Tom Frerichs of Charles City died Thursday after the van he was a passenger in struck the back of a road maintainer near Nora Springs.

A trooper says the maintainer was grading the shoulder of the highway when it was hit. The 69-year-old van driver was flown to a Mason City hospital. The construction worker wasn’t seriously injured.

It’s unclear what caused the crash.
