4 injured in Lincoln County crash involving towed vehicle
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - UPDATE, 2 p.m.: A multi-vehicle crash southeast of Sioux Falls involving a vehicle that was being towed sent several people to the hospital, authorities say.
The crash happened around 7:50 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Highway 11 and 270th Street, according to Lt. Ben Lord of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators say a Ford SUV driving east on 270th Street failed to stop at the intersection and was t-boned by a Dodge pickup driving south on Highway 11. The pickup was towing a flatbed trailer hauling a car. The collision caused the trailer to kick out into oncoming traffic, and it struck a northbound Ford pickup.
The driver of the Ford SUV and three occupants of the Dodge pickup were hospitalized with serous but non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities say the eastbound sign on 270th Street had been knocked down prior to the accident, which made it not visible to eastbound traffic.
The crash is still under investigation. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, the Harrisburg Fire Department, the South Dakota Highway Patrol, and the Tea and Canton police departments all responded to the accident.
