Man arrested in Sioux Falls crash that kills woman

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A 20-year-old Sioux Falls man has been arrested on drunken driving and vehicular homicide charges after allegedly causing a fatal crash early on New Year's Day.

Police allege that the man was driving drunk and caused a crash that killed a woman who was riding in another vehicle. Authorities did not immediately identify her.

The crash happened at a city intersection shortly after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say a Jeep driven by the suspect went through a flashing red stop light and collided with a van, killing the woman. Two other people in the van were treated for minor injuries.

Police say the man who was arrested was not hurt.
