MCLAUGHLIN, S.D. (AP) - A teenager is dead after a one-vehicle crash in Corson County.

The Highway Patrol says the 16-year-old boy was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle that went off state Highway 63 and rolled in the ditch. The crash happened about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, about 2 miles north of McLaughlin.

The boy died later at a hospital in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The 17-year-old boy driving the SUV suffered what authorities say are serious but not life-threatening injuries. He also was taken to a Bismarck hospital.

The patrol didn’t immediately release the boys’ names.
