STURGIS (AP) - The state Highway Patrol has released the names of the driver who died and two passengers who were hurt after a crash near Sturgis.

Authorities have identified the driver as 32-year-old Robert Bear Shield of Rapid City. He died Wednesday at the scene.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:10 p.m., when Bear Shield lost control of a pickup truck while driving on I-90. The vehicle rolled after going into the ditch and the three occupants were ejected.
