FARMINGTON -- A two vehicle crash killed one and injured another Thursday afternoon.

Preliminary investigations suggest a truck was stopped on County Highway A in Farmington. The driver was outside of the truck when a car crashed into the rear of its trailer, according to a release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The truck driver was found pinned between the truck and the attached trailer, the release said. The victim, a 55-year-old Sheboygan County man, was found deceased upon arrival.

The driver of the car, a 28-year-old Wend Bend woman, was extricated by personnel and transported to an area hospital.

The accident remains under investigation.
