MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) -

The Iowa State Patrol says one person was killed and two were injured - including a sheriff's deputy - in separate crashes on Interstate 35 in north-central Iowa.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that the crashes both happened Friday night on the same stretch of the southbound lanes of the interstate near Kensett.

Investigators say the first crash happened around 7:51 p.m. when a semitrailer hit an overpass support, injuring the driver. Around 9:30 p.m., a sheriff's sport utility vehicle parked in the shoulder to provide warning of the semi crash was hit from behind by a car, killing the car's driver.

The patrol says 65-year-old Johnnie Lee Waslick, of Mason City, was killed. Thirty-year-old Worth County Deputy Zachary Schrupp, of Northwood, was treated for injuries.
