MILBANK, S.D. — One woman died following a two-vehicle crash 10 miles west of Milbank on Monday, Nov. 7.

Preliminary crash information indicates that a 2008 Ecoline Van was eastbound on U.S. Highway 12 when it crossed the centerline into the westbound lane and collided head-on with a westbound 2005 Dodge Ram pickup. Both vehicles came to rest in the eastbound lane.

The 28-year-old female driver of the van was pronounced dead at the scene. She was wearing a seat belt.

The 26-year-old male driver of the pickup sustained life-threatening injuries while the 26-year-old male passenger received serious non-life threatening injuries. Both occupants were taken via ambulance to a Milbank hospital. Seat belt use by those occupants is under investigation.

The names of the three people involved have not yet been released pending notification of family members.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Mitchell Republic." 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.
