Charges are pending against a semi driver in a crash that killed a 64-year-old woman Friday on Interstate 90 near exit 60.

Names of people involved in the crash are being withheld pending family notification.

The crash happened when the semi-truck and trailer westbound on the interstate crossed into the oncoming eastbound lanes, hitting a Jeep driven by the woman. Both vehicles ended up in the eastbound off ramp.

While the woman in the SUV was killed, the 53-year-old man driving the truck has minor injuries.

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash. In a release, the Department of Public Safety says charges are pending against the semi driver.

Original story

A driver was killed Friday morning when the car was hit by an out-of-control semi on Interstate 90 near exit 60.

The crash, about 9:30 a.m., closed the eastbound lanes of the interstate as well as the exit.

Witnesses say the semi was in the westbound lane, lost control and went across the median, hitting the car.

Ethan Garr, who witnessed the crash, said “I went to hop the fence to see if I could help, but there was nothing I could do.”

We will update the story when more information is confirmed.
