SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a Dell Rapids man who died when the sport utility vehicle he was driving crashed last week near Sioux Falls.

Thirty-five-year-old Eric Petty was driving a Chevrolet Suburban on South Dakota Highway 115 when he lost control and rolled Tuesday night north of Sioux Falls. Petty was thrown from the SUV and later died. He was the only person in the vehicle.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.

Authorities have also released the name of a 15-year-old boy killed in a pickup crash in southeastern South Dakota last week.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says Dawson Knudson of Centerville lost control of the pickup on a gravel road Monday evening east of Centerville.

The vehicle rolled and went into the ditch. Knudson was thrown from the truck and later died at a Sioux Falls hospital.

Two 14-year-old passengers had minor injuries.
