Deuel County Crash Kills Watertown Man
A Watertown man died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle crash, 16 miles south of Watertown on Interstate 29 in Deuel County.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says 34-year-old Michael Boyd of Watertown was southbound on I-29 around 6:45am when his vehicle veered from the roadway, traveled into the center median and then entered the northbound driving lanes.
Troopers say Boyd’s vehicle collided with a semi-truck driven by 67-year-old Dennis Korthals of Alton, Iowa.
Boyd sustained fatal injuries from the crash, while Korthals had minor injuries.
The Patrol says both were wearing seat belts.
