Waterloo Police say a Carroll man is dead after being struck by a semi along Highway 20 in Waterloo Sunday night.  

Officers were called to Highway 20 eastbound, near the Highway 63 ramp at around 9:15 p.m. Sunday for a report of a pedestrian hit by a semi.

When they arrived, officers found Kyle Pudenz, 19, of Carroll, laying in the median with massive head and chest injuries.  He was taken to Covenant Medical Center where he died.

The driver of the semi, Valoree Adeill Blake, 49, of Vermillion, South Dakota, says she tried to swerve when Pudenz walked out into the path of her semi, but she could not avoid hitting him.

Pudenz's vehicle was found by police in the parking lot of Silver Eagle Harley-Davidson on Sergeant Road.

The accident remains under investigation.
