News Staff - January 4, 2020

BROOKINGS, S.D. – One person died in a fatal crash Saturday morning on Interstate 29 west of Flandreau.

Names of those involved are not yet being released pending notification of family.

A 2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab SR5 pickup, pulling a trailer with a Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV) on it, was northbound on I-29 when the driver hit a patch of ice and lost control. The pickup entered the median, rolled and came to a final rest on its roof.

The 60-year-old male driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle onto the interstate’s southbound lanes. He was struck by a southbound 2018 GMC Acadia SUV and was pronounced dead at the scene.

An 11-year-old female passenger, who was in the pickup, received minor injuries. The 54-year-old male driver of the SUV was not injured. Both were wearing seat belts.

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash.
