Woman Dies In Crash After Parking Car On I-90

Woman Dies In Crash After Parking Car On I-90
Nicole Estella Metcalf


A family is mourning the loss of a 21-year-old woman following a crash on Interstate 90 just east of Marion Road in Sioux Falls Wednesday.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says Nicole Metcalf of Fort Thompson died of her injuries after two vehicles collided.
One look at the cars at this tow yard and you can see the sheer force of the impact.  This is all that's left of the two vehicles that collided on Interstate 90 this morning.

Metal once welded together is split in half, tangled and unrecognizable. Glass windshields are shattered.  A trunk now sits in the backseat. 

While investigators are still trying to piece together exactly what happened, the South Dakota Highway Patrol says a Chevrolet Malibu driven by Metcalf was stopped in the eastbound driving lane.

While investigators don't know why the Metcalf parked the vehicle in in the driving lane, they say it had a flat tire.

As it was parked, this Pontiac Bonneville -- driven by a woman from Oacoma -- came up on the vehicle in its lane. Investigators say 19-year-old Brittany Mary Ann May tried to swerve, but still hit the Malibu from behind. 

Metcalf was outside the vehicle and investigators believe the collision threw her across the road and into the median. Both drivers and a passenger in the Malibu were immediately rushed to the hospital.

The driver of the Bonneville and a passenger in the car that was hit have minor injuries.
