Highway Patrol: 19-Year-Old Woman Identified In Deadly Crash


State authorities have identified a 19-year-old woman who died in a three-vehicle crash near Sioux Falls last week.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol, Caitlyn Carman was preparing to turn left onto 454th Avenue along State Highway 42 on Thursday. Her 2004 Honda CR-V was rear-ended by a 1996 Dodge Caravan being driven by 52-year-old Mark Begeman, of Monroe.

The crash pushed Carman’s vehicle into the path of an oncoming semi-trailer truck. She was pronounced dead at the scene and a 10-year-old boy inside her car suffered life-threatening injuries.

Highway Patrol Spokesperson Tony Mangan said charges are pending against Begeman. He and the driver of the tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
