CAVOUR — A 37-year-old man died in a one-vehicle rollover crash that also injured another person.

At about 1:20 a.m. Friday, three people traveling in a 1992 Dodge D250 pickup were headed southbound on 409th Avenue when the driver lost control on an ice-covered road. The vehicle went in the ditch, rolled and came to rest in standing water in the ditch.

Two passengers had to be extricated from the vehicle, including the man who was pronounced dead at the scene. A 31-year old passenger sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Huron hospital. The 31-year-old driver was uninjured and officials say charges are pending against him.

South Dakota Highway Patrol investigated the crash. No one was wearing a seat belt and names involved are not being released at this time. Cavour is in central South Dakota, about eight miles east of Huron.
