Black Hawk County sheriff’s deputies say 81-year old  Veryl Wickett died at the scene of the four-vehicle wreck on Highway 63/South Hudson Road.

Wickett was headed south and attempted to pass two pickup trucks with livestock trailers containing elk when his Honda HR-V collided with a northbound Tesla driven 39-year old  Jason Styve of Cedar Falls.

Styve received minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.

Pickup drivers Paul Hueg of Hammond, Wisconsin, and Gregory Lubinski of Plainview, Minnesota, weren’t injured.
