One man died and others were hospitalized as a result of a near-head-on collision at about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday in Plymouth County on C-60 near Juniper Avenue, according to the Plymouth County Sheriff's Department.

Dustin Nelson, 19, Le Mars, heading east in a Chevrolet Camaro, reportedly lost control on the road which was snowpacked and collided with a westbound car driven by David Brown, 59, Cherokee. Nelson died as the result of his injuries.

About two minutes later, an eastbound SUV driven by Jodi Kolar, 46, Merrill, struck Brown's vehicle which was disabled and without lights in the east bound lane.

Nelson's passenger, Austin Nelson, 14, also of Le Mars, was transported to Mercy Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Brown and his passengers Claudia Brown, 58, Cherokee, and Melinda Brown, 32, Staunton, Va., were transported to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City where they remain hospitalized as of this writing on Monday.
