Minnehaha County Fatal Crash

Teen killed in Minnehaha County crash


Gary Matthews - March 9, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – One person died and three others were injured in a three-vehicle crash that occurred Thursday evening west of Sioux Falls,

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

A 2004 Honda CR-V was westbound on South Dakota Highway 42 and was preparing to make a left-hand turn onto 454th Avenue. The vehicle was struck from behind by a westbound 1996 Dodge Caravan. The collision pushed the Honda into the path of an eastbound 2011 Freightliner Cascadia.

The 19-year-old female driver of the Honda was pronounced dead at the scene. A male passenger, age 10, was transported by helicopter to a Sioux Falls hospital.

Both of the other two drivers received minor injuries and were treated at the scene. All four people involved were wearing seatbelts. Charges are pending against the driver of the Dodge Caravan.

That area of Highway 42 was closed to traffic for several hours.

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. Other agencies on scene were McCook County Sheriff’s Office, Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, Humboldt Fire and Ambulance and Sanford AirMed.
