The male was then taken to hospital, where his condition deteriorated. He eventually succumbed to his injuries later this morning. <br> <br> It is unknown at this time whether the 69-year-old male died from injuries incurred as a result of the collision, or whether he had a pre-existing medical condition. <br> <br> The semi-truck driver and his passenger did not suffer any injuries. Damages to the semi are estimated at $5,000. Damages to the Escape are estimated at $10,000.
