Preliminary information indicates that a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier was northbound on U.S. Highway 85 in the inside driving lane when it crossed the turn lane and into the southbound lanes. The Cavalier sideswiped a southbound 2017 Ford F150 that was traveling in the inside driving lane. The Cavalier then crossed into the outside southbound lane and collided with a 2015 Peterbilt semi-truck and trailer.

The 43-year-old male driver of the Cavalier was pronounced dead at the scene. Two male passengers were not injured. Only the driver of the pickup was wearing a seat belt.

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is in charge of the investigation.
