An 81-year-old Viborg woman was killed Thursday afternoon when she was hit by a vehicle near 15th Street and West City Limits Road in Yankton.
The Yankton County Sheriff’s Office says a 15-year-old Yankton male was driving a Honda CRV south along West City Limits Road when he struck two females who were crossing the street for a nearby garage sale.

Sheriffs Deputy Mike Rothschadl says the two ladies were parked along the northbound lane and walking across the street.
The driver told investigators he was adjusting his radio when the accident occurred.
The speed limit along that portion of West City Limits Road is 45 mph.
