RAPID CITY-A man died Thursday after being hospitalized for injuries sustained in a Rapid City crash that killed a woman earlier this month.

James Broderick, 71, was taken to the hospital in Rapid City on May 7 after a two-vehicle crash left him with what were considered serious, non-life-threatening injuries, according to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.

Hannah Drake, 26, also of Rapid City, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

At 8:14 a.m. on May 7, about five miles south of Rapid City, Drake, driving a 2010 Honda CRV, was turning left from Spring Creek Road onto S.D. Highway 79, pulling in front of a southbound 2004 Ford Freestar driven by Broderick.

The vehicles collided, and the Honda became engulfed in flames. Drake was unable to get out of the burning vehicle. She and Broderick were the only two people involved in the crash.
