The Patrol says a car driven by 18-year-old Josiah Wright was westbound, crossed the center line and collided with an on-coming semi. Wright was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the car and died at the scene.

The semi driver, 35-year-old Steven Nelson of Paynesville, was taken to the Paynesville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
