South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Rick Olauson says three passengers in one car died in what appears to be a head-on collision.

Michael Muonio, of Battle Ground, Washington state, was driving one of the cars and died on the scene. A six-month-old infant and 19-year-old Lorissa Bellikka both survived the crash, but later died at hospitals. Both were from Washington as well.

The American News in Aberdeen reports 66-year-old Kaster Unser, of Ipswich, was driving the other vehicle involved in the crash. Olauson says he sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries. He was traveling alone.

The infant died at the Bowdle hospital and Bellikka at St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck, North Dakota.
