Tripp woman killed in rollover crash
DIMOCK — An 85-year-old Tripp woman was killed in a single-vehicle rollover Friday morning on state Highway 37 near the Davison and Hutchinson county line.
Barbara Armstrong was northbound shortly before 10 a.m. in a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee when she lost control of her vehicle on the frost-covered road, according to South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Aaron Hanson. Armstrong’s vehicle slid into the east ditch and rolled at least three times before coming to rest on the driver’s side.
Armstrong was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle in the crash, Hanson said. She was taken by ambulance to Avera St. Benedict Health Center in Parkston, but died of her injuries.
The Highway Patrol, Hutchinson County Sheriff’s Office, Parkston Fire Department and Parkston Ambulance responded to the crash.
