26-Year-Old Man Dies Following Sioux Falls Crash

January 11, 2013, 10:54 AM

26-Year-Old Man Dies Following Sioux Falls Crash
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Witnesses say a car involved in a deadly crash was going 60 miles per hour before it hit a tree in a west-central Sioux Falls neighborhood.

It was around 10 p.m. Thursday night when the 2005 Mercury Montego was traveling north on South Holly Avenue when it came to a T-intersection at West Oak Street and kept going, crashing into a tree.

The five people in the car were all taken to the hospital, where the 26-year-old driver later died from his injuries.  At this point, police haven't named the Sioux Falls man. 

The other passengers in the car include a 25-year-old man from Pierre, a 20-year-old man from Sioux Falls, a 21-year-old Sioux Falls woman and a 23-year-old Sioux Falls man.  The 23-year-old man was on parole and ran from the scene. He was taken back to the penitentiary.

Police say both speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.  They also don't believe anyone in the car was wearing their seatbelt.
