WESSINGTON SPRINGS, S.D. (AP) - Two people died and another was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in Jerauld County.

The Highway Patrol says a pickup truck crossed the center line on state Highway 34 and collided with a large truck shortly before noon Thursday. The pickup went into the ditch and started on fire, about 8 miles west of Wessington Springs.

The 75-year-old man driving the pickup and a 30-year-old male passenger both died at the scene.

The 52-year-old man driving the large truck was flown to a Sioux Falls hospital with what authorities said are life-threatening injuries.

The names of the victims weren’t immediately released.
