BOWDLE, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Faulkton teenager who was killed in a crash in Edmunds County.

The Highway Patrol says 16-year-old Christopher Cassens was driving a car that collided with a semitrailer pulling an empty cattle trailer Monday night at a state Highway 47 intersection on the east side of Bowdle.

Cassens was killed and 16-year-old passenger Nicholas Wittmeier suffered what authorities say are life-threatening injuries. He also is from Faulkton.

The semi driver wasn’t hurt.
