An Owatonna man is dead after his pickup truck was hit by a semi that failed to stop at a stop sign in Waseca County Wednesday afternoon. It happened at just before 2:30pm at the intersection of Highways 30 and 83. The Chevy pickup driven by 41-year-old Todd Owen was heading eastbound on Highway 30 when the southbound Peterbilt semi driven by 37-year-old Gregory Wendinger of Courtland reportedly failed to stop and broadsided the truck. Owen was dead at the scene while Wendinger was taken to the Mankato Mayo Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Both vehicles were totaled.
