ELK POINT, S.D. (AP) — One person is dead and four others injured after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 29 in Union County.

The Highway Patrol says a sport utility vehicle went out of control in heavy rain, crossed through the median and into the oncoming lanes and collided head-on with a van. The crash happened shortly before 1:30 p.m. Monday near Elk Point.

A 32-year-old female passenger in the SUV later died from her injuries. A 45-year-old male passenger in the van suffered what the patrol says are life-threatening injuries.

Both drivers and a second passenger in the van suffered what authorities say are minor injuries.

The names of the people involved weren't immediately released.
