At 8:50 p.m. Friday, Roald Beiningen, 67, of Platte, was traveling westbound on 282nd Street, near 362nd Avenue, five miles southwest of Platte. Beiningen's 2013 Buick Regal drifted off of the roadway into the north ditch, where it vaulted off of a field approach and flipped end-over-end multiple times, according to Tony Mangan, public information officer for the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.

Beiningen, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to a hospital in Platte and was later airlifted to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls.
