DANTE - A Wagner man was identified Sunday as the victim in a fatal crash last week.

Jeremy Lhotak, 34, of Wagner, was identified by the South Dakota Department of Public Safety (DPS) as the person killed in a one-vehicle rollover crash Thursday night near Dante.

At about 10:45 p.m., Lhotak was driving a 1999 Ford F-250 pickup south on 400th Avenue, approximately one mile south of Dante, when the vehicle left the roadway at the intersection with 301st Street, according to DPS.

The vehicle entered the east ditch and rolled. Lhotak was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, DPS said, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was in the vehicle.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. The Charles Mix County Sheriff's Office and Yankton Sioux Tribal Police also responded.
