SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – One person died and three others were injured in a two-vehicle crash that occurred Wednesday morning in Sioux Falls,

 

Names of the people involved are not being released by state officials pending notification of family members.

 

A 2000 Ford F-150 pickup truck was northbound on Interstate 229 when the 18-year-old male driver failed to negotiate a left-hand curve. The pickup traveled onto the right shoulder and into the ditch before the driver overcorrected to the left. This caused the pickup to cross Interstate 229 and strike the median and metal guardrail.  After striking the guardrail, the pickup vaulted causing it to land on top of a 2004 Honda CRV which was southbound on Interstate 229.

 

The pickup driver was ejected and later pronounced dead at the scene. It is unknown whether he was wearing a seatbelt.

 

All three occupants of the Honda CRV were wearing seatbelts or were in a child restraint seat. The 35-year-old male driver suffered serious non-life threatening injuries. The two male passengers, ages five and four, sustained minor injuries.

 

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. Other agencies on scene were Sioux Falls Police Department, Sioux Falls Fire and Rescue and Paramedics Plus and MedStar.

 

The Highway Patrol is part of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.
