Tue 4-2-2019

(Fostoria)-- One person was taken to the hospital Monday when a semi collided with the rear of the car he was driving.

The Dickinson County Sheriff's Office says 69-year-old Dennis Nagel of Milford was northbound on Highway 71 just north of the Dickinson/Clay county line when a semi, which was also northbound, collided with the rear of his vehicle causing him to lose control of it. The 1999 Chevrolet Nagel was driving then went into the ditch.

Nagel was taken to Spencer Hospital. The driver of the semi, 23-year-old Trevor Doll of New Munich, Minnesota, wasn't hurt.

Damage to the vehicle driven by Nagel was estimated at $10,000; no damage was reported to the 2016 Peterbilt semi driven by Doll which was pulling a livestock trailer.

Doll was cited for failure to reduce speed to a proper rate.

The collision took place around 4:00 pm.
