At least one person has died in a crash on Interstate 35 Monday morning two miles north of the Minnesota-Iowa border. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash occurred after a 2007 Kenworth semi well-drilling truck that was southbound on I-35 had a tire blow out at 8:08 a.m. and the driver lost control, crossed the median and struck a northbound 2001 Dodge Ram pickup. 

The pickup was driven by a 22-year-old man from Glenville, and the semi was driven by Scott Lewis Kirton, 45, of Hammond, Wisconsin.

Kirton received non-life-threatening injuries and was not taken to the hospital, according to the report.
