One person is dead and another person is injured following a crash in Taylor County, officials said.

The crash was reported at about 1:15 p.m. Tuesday in the town of Roosevelt.

A preliminary investigation shows that James Penk was plowing snow with a truck, pushing snow from a driveway into the road, when he pulled out in front of a passing vehicle, according to police.

Both drivers were flown by medical helicopter to Aspirus Hospital in Medford, where Penk later died.

The second driver’s name has not been released and a current condition has not been provided.

Penk, 65, was from Lublin.
