Two people were killed in a Sunday morning crash involving a pickup truck and semi-trailer on Interstate 90 west of Murdo.

The victims’ names are not being released until family members are notified.

The crash happened when the semi, driven by a 53-year-old man, crossed into the oncoming traffic. The pickup, traveling in the opposite direction, hit the side of the semi’s trailer, sending both vehicles into the ditch where the trailer and pickup caught fire.

The 64-year-old female driver and 59-year-old male passenger of the pickup were killed. The semi-trailer driver was not injured.

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
