HULL, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say an 88-year-old resident has died after a pickup crashed through a wall into a nursing home in northwest Iowa.

The Sioux County Sheriff's Office says Anna Dykstra was pronounced dead Monday afternoon at Pleasant Acres Care Center in Hull. The pickup driver, 77-year-old Lawrence Sohl, was taken to a Sioux Center hospital for treatment. No other injuries have been reported.

The Sheriff's Office says Sohl was driving behind his wife when he ran into the rear of her minivan before ramming into the nursing home.
