Mitchell man thrown from vehicle in rollover

LAKE ANDES -- One person was injured in a rollover accident Sunday north of Lake Andes.

Joshua McGhee, 31, of Mitchell, was traveling west on 290th Street in a 2000 Ford Contour when he lost control of the vehicle around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the South Dakota Highway Patrol. The vehicle entered the south ditch and rolled. McGhee was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle.

McGhee walked to a nearby residence for help and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, according to the South Dakota Highway Patrol.
