Two Dell Rapids, S.D., people died in a one-vehicle crash on a gravel road two miles west and one-half mile north of Wagner on Sunday, Sept. 29.

32 year old Stephanie Jo Thompson was driving a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac south on the gravel road. She lost control, and the vehicle entered the west ditch and rolled. Thompson was wearing a seatbelt. She was partially ejected from the vehicle and was dead at the scene.

A passenger in the vehicle, 34 year old Derek Gavin Weston was not wearing a seatbelt. He was thrown from the vehicle and was dead at the scene.

No further information is immediately available.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. The Charles Mix County Sheriff’s Office, the Wagner Police Department, the Wagner Fire Department and the Bureau of Indian Affairs assisted.
