One person is dead after a truck struck a house in the Village of Hollandale.

Iowa County Sheriff's department responded to the crash. A preliminary investigation shows that the driver of the truck, 74-year-old John Gort of Mineral Point, drove off the street, and through a backyard on Severson St., striking a fence.

The truck then drove back onto the street. From there, the driver went to Scott St. and after a short distance went off the roadway, striking a house. There were people in the home at the time of the crash.

Both people in the house were not injured, but were treated and checked by EMS personnel.

The driver of the truck was later pronounced dead by Iowa county Chief Deputy Coroner.

The crash remains under investigation.
