Haakon County Crash Kills One; Injures Three

PHILIP, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say one woman was killed and three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash east of Philip, in Haakon County.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a woman driving an SUV and pulling a boat on a trailer was westbound on U.S. Highway 14 Friday afternoon when she slowed down to pull into a driveway. A man driving a pickup truck behind her collided with the SUV while attempting to pass.

A 36-year-old woman who was a passenger in the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene. The 32-year-old driver and two passengers, ages 12 and 9, received serious non-life threatening injuries. They were taken to a Philip hospital.

The patrol says all of the people involved in the crash were wearing seatbelts. Their names have not been released.
