SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Authorities say one person is dead after an early morning crash in southwest Sioux Falls.
The crash happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday on W. 57th Street a few blocks west of Marion Road.
Police say a Honda sedan was driving west when it lost control and struck a tree. When officers arrived, they found a single occupant dead inside the vehicle.
Investigators are still working to confirm the identity of the victim. Police say it does not appear they were wearing a seat belt.
