Officials say two Wisconsin residents died in a fiery crash in northwest Iowa.
The crash happened Monday afternoon just east of Holstein in Ida County. The Iowa State Patrol identified the two as 55-year-old Michael Hengel, of Milwaukee, and 38-year-old Cory Severson, of Pine River, Wis.
The two were in a car that had stopped at a construction site on U.S. Highway 20 to wait for a pilot vehicle. Authorities say the car was hit from behind by a semitrailer and pushed into the back of semitrailer that had stopped in front of the car.
Authorities say the two victims were trapped inside as the car burst into flames.
