SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A two-vehicle crash on Interstate 229 in Sioux Falls killed a Minnesota man and injured two other people.

The Highway Patrol says a pickup truck driven by 90-year-old Edward Thraen, of Slayton, Minnesota, was traveling in the wrong lane and collided head-on with another pickup.

Thraen was pronounced dead at the scene mid-afternoon Wednesday. The two people in the other pickup, from Crooks, suffered injuries that authorities say are serious but not life-threatening. They were taken to a Sioux Falls hospital.

The crash shut down that portion of the interstate for a time.
