Shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday, authorities in Charles Mix County were called to South Dakota Highway 46, approximately one mile west of Fort Randall Casino, for a report of a two-vehicle crash.

Preliminary crash information released by the South Dakota Highway Patrol indicates that a 2006 Ford Five Hundred was westbound on South Dakota Highway 46 when the driver lost control in rainy conditions.

The vehicle went into the eastbound lane and collided with a 2017 Subaru Forester.

Often, the "Mitchell Republic" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
