A man is dead after a crash between a vehicle and a semi-truck in Nowthen, Wednesday afternoon.
The Anoka County Sheriff's Office says authorities responded to a reported crash on Highway 47 near 199th Avenue Northwest at 1:22 p.m.
Early indications are a vehicle was headed south on Highway 47 when it crossed into the northbound lane and collided with a northbound semi-truck, the sheriff's office said.
