A semi-truck driven by Dennis Baker, 72, of Des Moines, hit Ryan’s pickup in a T-bone fashion, authorities said.
Ryan was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital. Another man, William Holford, 71, of Morton, Illinois, was taken in an ambulance to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics with injuries.
Both men were wearing seat belts.
