A driver was killed after a collision with a semi-truck in Redwood County, Minnesota on Friday evening.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash happened on Hwy. 14 at County Road 7 in Revere at 5:40 p.m.

A 1997 Dodge Ram driven by a 22-year-old man from Revere crossed the center line.

The Ram then collided head-on with a 2007 International Semi coming the other direction, driven by a 31-year-old man from Morgan, Minnesota.

The Ram driver was killed in the crash, while the semi driver was unhurt.
