Hartman died Friday morning at the St. Cloud Hospital.

According to the State Patrol, Hartman was driving a 2002 Chevy Express van westbound on U.S. Highway 12 following a snow plow, while a 2005 Freightliner M2 truck driven by David M. Evazich, 27, of Burnsville, was eastbound.

Evazich reported to officers that as his vehicle came through blowing snow from the plow, Hartman's van was in his lane and the vehicles collided head-on.

Funeral arrangements for Hartman are pending with the Harvey Anderson Funeral Home in Willmar.
