Fifty-six year-old Dennis Leonard of Holstein, Iowa was southbound on Old Highway 60 in a 2007 Sterling truck. Thirty-year-old Nathan White of Sheldon was northbound on Old 60 in a 2006 Ford pickup.

The report says that Nagel was stopped at the stop sign on the east side of the intersection with Old 60. White was slowing down or was stopped, waiting to turn west onto Sixteenth Avenue.
