Moody County Crash Kills Egan, South Dakota Man
A man from Egan died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle crash five miles southeast of Flandreau, in Moody County.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says Nicholas Michael Otto, 62, was driving east on State Highway 34 at 5:24am when his vehicle lost traction and slid into the westbound lane.
Otto’s car collided with a westbound vehicle driven by 24-year-old Kyle James Vanderpoel of Pipestone, Minnesota.
Troopers says Vanderpoel was not wearing a seatbelt and received minor injuries, while Otto was wearing a seatbelt, but sustained fatal injuries in the crash.
