HUMBOLDT, S.D. – A motorcyclist from southwestern Minnesota has been identified as the man who died Thursday morning in a head-on collision in eastern South Dakota.

Shortly before 8:15 a.m. on Thursday, authorities in McCook County, South Dakota, were called to mile marker 371 of Interstate 90, roughly eight miles west of Humboldt, for a report of a motorcycle-vehicle crash.

Preliminary crash information released by the South Dakota Highway Patrol indicates that a 1998 Harley-Davidson FXDWG motorcycle was westbound on Interstate 90, in a two-lane construction zone, when the motorcycle crossed the center line and collided with an eastbound 2022 Nissan Sentra.

The driver of the motorcycle — later identified as 66-year-old Terry DeNeui, 66, of Rushmore, Minnesota — was thrown from the motorcycle. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Nissan was identified as 57-year-old Paul Britton, of Knoxville, Tennessee. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and was not injured.
