WOLSEY, S.D. (AP) – A two-vehicle crash in Beadle County late last week killed one person and seriously injured another.
The Highway Patrol says a semitrailer failed to stop at a junction of U.S. Highways 14 and 281 north of Wolsey and collided with a pickup truck Friday afternoon.
The 18-year-old woman driving the pickup died at a Huron hospital. An 18-year-old female passenger suffered life-threatening injuries.
The 24-year-old semi driver suffered what the patrol described as minor injuries. Charges are pending against the man.
