Minnesota man dies in high-speed crash on I-35


NEVADA (AP) -- The Iowa State Patrol is investigating a fatal high-speed crash on Interstate 35 in Story County.

The Iowa State Patrol clocked a 1998 Ford Focus going 108 mph along I-35 in Franklin County early Wednesday morning. The Trooper attempted to make a traffic stop when the driver began driving erratically.

A Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy deployed stop sticks at the 126 mile marker, disabling the vehicle's left front tire, but the driver kept on going into Story County. Troopers say he eventually crossed into the oncoming lanes, where he collided head-on with a semitrailer truck.

The driver, who was killed in the crash, has been identified as 47-year-old Paul Korkowski of St. Paul, Minn.
