Two Dead in Head On Collision

Two people died in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 81 about three miles north of Yankton on Friday, Feb. 7.

 

Becky Marie Leapley, 57, of Yankton, was southbound driving a 2004 Mitsubishi EDV. Her vehicle crossed the center line into the oncoming lane. Lloyd Harvey Mork, 64, of Irene, S.D., was northbound driving a 2002 Chevrolet K1500 pickup. He moved into the southbound lane but Leapley’s vehicle returned to that lane. The vehicles collided head-on and came to rest in the middle of the highway.

 

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. Both were dead at the scene.

 

No further information is immediately available.

 

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. Yankton County Sheriff’s Office, Yankton Fire and Rescue and Yankton Emergency Medical Service assisted.
