OACOMA -- Three people sustained minor injuries in two separate crashes Wednesday morning near Oacoma.
The first crash, according to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, occurred at 10:15 a.m. on the Interstate 90 business loop, 1 mile east of Oacoma.
A 72-year-old man lost control of his 2013 Chevy K1500 while westbound on I-90. The pickup went off the roadway, into the south ditch, through a chain link fence and across both westbound lanes before coming to rest in the median.
The driver, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to the hospital in Chamberlain. No charges are pending against him, and no one else was involved in the crash.
At 11:25 a.m., another crash occurred when a westbound motorcycle pulled onto I-90 from the Oacoma exit and drove into a construction zone where asphalt was being applied. The driver lost control of the 2003 Harley Davidson FLTCU, and it slid 15 feet.
The male driver and female passenger, both 67, were both wearing helmets at the time of the crash, and no charges are pending against the driver.
The driver of the motorcycle had his injuries treated at the scene, and the passenger was transported to the Chamberlain hospital.
