CRESCO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a Decorah (deh-KOR-uh) couple died after a highway accident in northeast Iowa.

The accident occurred around 11 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Iowa Highways 9 and 139 about a mile east of Cresco.

The Iowa State Patrol says a car driven by 88-year-old Donald Olsen had stopped at the intersection. The patrol says that when Olsen drove into the intersection, his car was struck by a southbound pickup driven by 75-year-old Gerald Ollendieck, of Ridgeway.

Olsen and his wife, 82-year-old Wilma Olsen, were pronounced dead after arriving at hospital. Ollendieck also was hospitalized for treatment.
