WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol says one man was killed and two others were injured over the weekend in a rollover crash on a highway in Codington County.

Twenty-eight-year-old Trent Smith was driving a pickup truck along Interstate 29 in Watertown on Saturday morning when he lost control of the vehicle and it went into a ditch, struck a pole and rolled. He was partially ejected from the truck and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two passengers were completely ejected from the vehicle. Both men suffered injuries that aren’t considered to be life-threatening.

No one in the truck was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
