Denison man killed, Sioux City man hurt in collision near Schleswig


SCHLESWIG, Iowa -- A Denison, Iowa, man was killed late Thursday in a two-vehicle collision on a county road near Schleswig.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, Karry Schurke, 48, was eastbound in a Ford Flex sport utility vehicle on Crawford County Road E-16 about four miles west of Schleswig at 11:18 p.m. when he crossed the center line into the path of a westbound semi-trailer driven by Leonel Pena, 33, of Sioux City.

As Pena took evasive action by braking and steering left, Schurke steered back into the eastbound lane and the two vehicles collided nearly head on. Schurke was pronounced dead at the scene, and Pena was transported to Crawford County Memorial Hospital in Denison.

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly identified the gender of Karry Schurke. The error was repeated in the headline.
