WALL-One woman died and three people were injured Tuesday afternoon in a three-vehicle crash four miles west of Wall, in Pennington County.

A 2007 Saturn Ion, a 2014 Cadillac Escalade and a 2016 Hyundai were all westbound on a snow- and ice-covered Interstate 90 at 3:47 p.m. The Saturn's driver, a 19-year-old man, lost control of his vehicle while attempting to pass the Escalade, according to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.

The Saturn slid into the right lane and was hit by the Escalade and then the Hyundai.

The 19-year-old female passenger in the Saturn was pronounced dead at the scene, and it is not known if she was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

The Saturn's driver and the 37-year-old female driver of the Escalade both sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries. A 36-year-old male passenger in the Escalade sustained minor injuries, and the Hyundai's 24-year-old female driver was uninjured.
