Driver dies trying to free big truck

A truck driver from Whitewater has died in a freak accident on a farm in Jesup, Iowa.

Buchanan County authorities said 54-year-old Steven Rasey was delivering drainage tiles to a farm near when his semi-truck got stuck in snow. Rasey was apparently using a skid loader to try and free the truck when he became trapped between the two vehicles.

The farm's owner found him unconscious. Rasey died later at the hospital.
