16-year-old Tonya Anderson from Parker, SD died in a one vehicle crash west of Sioux Falls on Highway 42 on Friday.
Anderson was riding as a passenger with Shadd Larry Tullis, 17, of Harrisburg. Tullis was driving a 1995 Honda Accord eastbound on Highway 42 about 10 miles west of Sioux Falls.
Tullis tried to pass two vehicles when he saw a car heading toward him. He tried to veer back into the eastbound lane but lost control. The Honda began to slide sideways and went into the south ditch, hitting a utility pole and swinging the car around to a rest on its wheels.
Anderson suffered fatal injuries. Tullis was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Neither was wearing a seatbelt.
