MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say one person is dead after a van left a road and wound up in the James River near Mitchell.

The Highway Patrol says authorities discovered the van Wednesday morning. The body of a 28-year-old man was found along the river’s west shore about a quarter of a mile away. Authorities have been searching for more possible occupants.

The patrol says the van was eastbound about 2 miles east of Mitchell when the vehicle entered the ditch, went through a barbed wire fence and into the river. The time and date of the crash remain under investigation.
