Four people were killed in a single vehicle crash on Interstate 90 just west of Sioux Falls Saturday night. Among them was 52-year-old James Vollmer, 48-year-old Julie Vollmer, 16-year-old Alysa Vollmer and 13-year-old Caleb Vollmer. All were from Sioux Falls.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol their vehicle, which was traveling east, left the roadway and entered the median. It struck a cable guardrail and continued to slide in the median and down and embankment. It valted from one side of the embankment and struck the other side before coming to a rest.

James, the driver and the two children riding in the back seat, died at the scene. Julie, the front-seat passenger, was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.

James worked at Avera. Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health sent out a statement on Sunday. It said, "We are deeply saddened at the loss of Jim Vollmer. Jim was an outstanding staff member of Avera Behavioral Health. Our sincere condolences go out to the family."

Jim's wife, Julie, was a long-time nurse at Sanford USD Medical Center. They also sent out a statement Sunday saying, "Julie was an exceptional mentor and leader in The Birth Place at Sanford USD Medical Center. Our deepest condolences are extended to Julie’s family and friends."
