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.

Eleanor Shane died at the scene.

57 year old Margaret Wrigg, also of Viborg, was taken to Avera Sacred Heart hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The incident was reported at 3:48 p.m.

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.
