RELIANCE - A 17-year-old from Lower Brule was seriously injured after being ejected in a single-vehicle crash Tuesday night.

Jerwin Wilson was traveling south on 327th Avenue, 1 mile west and 6 miles north of Reliance, near the intersection of 235th Street at 6:30 p.m. when he met an oncoming car traveling in the opposite direction, according to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.

Wilson overcorrected the 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada he was driving and the vehicle left the roadway and rolled. Wilson was not wearing a seat belt, officials say.

Wilson was transported to Sanford Hospital in Chamberlain, and charges are pending.
