Four cars collide on Elk Vale Road in Rapid Valley

Posted: Updated: Sep 30, 2013 05:15 PM


Around 3:40 p.m. Monday, first responders were called to an injury accident on Elk Vale Road, just south of Highway 44.

A 2013 Kia Rio, driven by a 16-year-old male from Ellsworth, was heading north on Elk Vale in the right lane. He changed over to the left lane, striking at 2006 Ford Expedition that was also traveling north.

The impact pushed the Expedition across the median, into the southbound lanes. The Expedition was then struck head-on by a southbound 2007 Ford Edge. Immediately after that, the Edge was struck by a 2003 Dodge Neon. The Expedition was pushed off the road and rolled down a hill, catching fire.

Witnesses stopped to help pull the driver of the Expedition out of the vehicle before it became fully engulfed in flames. The Rapid City Fire Department transported the drivers of the Expedition, Neon and Edge to the hospital with significant injuries.

The accident investigation is continuing, and charges against the 16-year-old are pending.
