EDGEMONT, S.D. — One man died Sunday afternoon near Edgemont in a three-vehicle crash involving six people.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday, authorities in Fall River County were called to mile marker on U.S. Highway 18, approximately three miles east of Edgemont, for a report of a three-vehicle crash.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol, a 2011 Toyota Tundra was eastbound on U.S. Highway 18 when it slowed down to make a left turn onto Red Canyon Road.

The Toyota was rear-ended by an eastbound 2008 GMC Sierra pickup. The collision sent the Toyota into the westbound lane where it was struck by a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup.

The Toyota tipped over and the 57-year-old male driver of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene. His seat belt use is under investigation.
