A Fort Thompson woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash in Sioux Falls.
21-year-old Nicole Estella Metcalf was heading eastbound on I-90 about two miles east of Marion Road near Sioux Falls in a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu.
Metcalf's vehicle got a flat tire. She stopped her car in the driving lane (right lane) and got out.
The Malibu was hit in the back end by 19-year-old Brittany Mary Ann May driving a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville, who had swerved in an attempt to miss the stopped Malibu. The crash threw Metcalf to the ground near the median. She was airlifted to a hospital in Sioux Falls where she died early Wednesday morning.
Metcalf's passenger, 21-year-old David M. Blackmoon, received minor injuries.
May also received minor injuries and was not wearing a seatbelt.
