We now know that seven different vehicles were involved in a deadly crash at one of Sioux Falls' busiest intersections on Valentine's Day.
Police say one person is dead and six people were sent to the hospital Thursday afternoon, in what they're calling a chain reaction of events.
Three of the vehicles were waiting at a stoplight on 41st Street when a 1998 Chevy Blazer, traveling north at a very high speed, struck the line of cars from behind. This pushed the first vehicle waiting at the stoplight into the 41st and Minnesota intersection. That car, a 1998 Buick Century, was then hit by two other vehicles that were going through the intersection.
The vehicle that caused this chain reaction ended up veering into Taylor's Pantry gas station on the corner of the intersection. It struck a large sign, then struck an unoccupied minivan and finally came to a stop upside down near some gas pumps.
The driver that started the chain reaction was pronounced dead at the scene. No names are being released until family is notified.
All six people injured were sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
