A 21-year-old Carroll man died this morning after he was thrown from a pickup truck when it crashed into a tree just north of Coon Rapids, according to a sheriff's report.
Tallon Nicholas Beiter was northbound on Velvet Avenue near 320th Street where the road bends to the east about 1:30 a.m. when his truck crossed the roadway's centerline and went partially into its west ditch. Beiter steered the truck back across the roadway and into the east ditch, where it overturned and struck a tree.
Beiter was taken by ambulance to St. Anthony Regional Hospital with unspecified major injuries and was then transferred to a Des Moines hospital, where he died.
A passenger in the truck, Abby Bruch, 20, of Audubon, suffered minor injuries in the crash.
