STURGIS, S.D. (AP) - The driver killed along with two passengers in an interstate crash near Sturgis was going about 147 mph before hitting the back of a semi, according to the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

Twenty-one-year-old Jaden Olson, of Rapid City, was driving the Maserati on Interstate 90 on Oct. 6 when he rear-ended the semi, ripping off the roof of the car as it went underneath the semi, the Rapid City Journal reported.

Olson, 22-year-old Thomas Jackson, of Spearfish and 55-year-old Titus Ironshield, of Cannon Ball, North Dakota were killed.

The semi driver and a passenger were not injured. The semi driver didn’t do anything that contributed to the crash and his truck stopped about 1,000 feet ahead in the shoulder of the highway, the patrol’s report said.

Olson’s drug and alcohol tests are pending.
