Four people died in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 just west of Sioux Falls Saturday night.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says the accident happened at 5:17 p.m. near mile marker 394. The patrol says the family of four was traveling eastbound in a 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. when it left the roadway and entered the median. It struck a cable guardrail and continued to slide in the snow-filled median, striking an embankment and vaulting before coming to rest.
All four occupants were wearing seatbelts. The driver and two juveniles riding in the back seat died at the scene. The front-seat passenger was taken to a Sioux Falls hospital but died there of injuries received in the crash.
Names of the victims are being withheld until relatives have been notified.
No further information is immediately available.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, Minnehaha County Emergency Management, Sioux Falls Rural Metro, Crooks Fire and Rescue and Sanford Trauma 1 helicopter assisted.
