Two people have died after being struck by a vehicle in southeastern South Dakota's Charles Mix County.
The Highway Patrol identified the victims of the Monday night incident as 46-year-old Robert Klumb, of Pierre, and 25-year-old Maegen Spindler, of Cazenovia, N.Y.
Authorities say they were hit by a vehicle driven by 28-year-old Ronald Fischer Jr., of Lake Andes. The patrol says he was driving a minivan that failed to stop at a stop sign at a highway intersection near Pickstown and traveled into a private parking lot, where it hit the two people and two vehicles. Fischer was seriously injured.
