A Wakefield man is dead tonight after an early-morning head-on crash with a tractor trailer in Ironwood.
The Gogebic County Sheriff’s Department says it’s 31-year-old Adrian Norabuena-Medina.
The accident happened shortly after 3:30 Central time this morning.
His car hit a tractor trailer loaded with logs on US-2, right in front of Grand View Health System.
He died at the scene.
Preliminary investigations found that the car crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic.
After hitting the truck head-on, the car then got trapped underneath it.
Portions of the highway had to be closed for more than 5 hours to clear logs and other debris.
The driver of the big rig wasn’t hurt.
There’s no word on why Norabuena-Medina’s car crossed traffic.
