The South Dakota’s Highway Patrol says the driver of a westbound Ford Mustang lost control of his vehicle on 430th Avenue.

The vehicle went into ditch, hit a field approach, went airborne and caught fire after landing.

All three occupants were ejected from the vehicle and airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital.

A 20-year-old passenger later died from his injuries.

The 29-year-old driver and a 25-year-old second passenger both suffered life-threatening injuries.

Charges are pending against the driver.

The names of those involved have not been released and the accident remains under investigation.
