A Madison woman is dead after a rollover accident Tuesday evening.
It happened around 9:00 pm Tuesday when the Lake County Sheriff's office responded to a one vehicle accident near the intersection of 456th Avenue and 232nd Street.
Officials say a 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by 20-year-old Rebecca Reese of Madison, lost control of the vehicle as it rounded a curve, and rolled into the ditch.
Reese, and passenger, 24-year-old Andrew Fonke of Fayetteville, North Carolina were ejected from the vehicle on impact.
Reese died at the scene, while Fonke was taken to the Madison Hospital and treated for minor injuries.
Officials say neither of the two were wearing seat belts.
The Lake County Sheriff's office and South Dakota Highway Patrol continue to investigate the other remaining factors in the accident.
