Emery, Iowa women die in crashes along slick I-29Two crashes claim lives as freezing drizzle turns Interstate 29 slick.
ELK POINT (AP) — The South Dakota Highway Patrol says freezing drizzle along Interstate 29 in Union County led to two fatal crashes Tuesday morning.
Troopers say 27-year-old Angela Beth Snoozy, of Emery, was killed around 7 a.m. after her car lost control one mile south of Elk Point, crossed the median and struck a garbage truck. A third vehicle then struck the engine assembly of Snoozy's car, which had been dislodged in the crash with the truck, but no one was injured in that vehicle.
In a separate crash 40 minutes later 12 miles south of Beresford, 38-year-old Tonya Marie Anderson, of Akron, Iowa, was killed after her pickup truck lost control, skidded into the median and rolled. The patrol says Anderson was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the truck.
