A man from central has reportedly died after his pickup was struck from behind.

That crash took place on Stearns County Road 45 west of Clearwater.

According to the report, Donald Zwilling, 56, of Clearwater, had been northbound on the highway and had stopped to inspect front-end damage from a suspected collision with a deer. A second pickup driven by Jay Kangas, 37, of Kimball, was also northbound and struck Zwilling's truck.

The impact pushed the first truck forward and pinned Zwilling underneath, killing him.

Authorities say that Kangas suffered only minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
