CHARLES MIX COUNTY, S.D. (KELO) — The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal van versus semi crash in Charles Mix County.
According to the Department of Public Safety, a Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling south on Highway 50 while a semi tractor-trailer was traveling west on Highway 46 Tuesday evening.
The semi did not have a stop sign and was traveling through the intersection of both highways. Officials say after stopping, the Caravan pulled out in front of the semi and the semi struck the vehicle.
The highway patrol says 68-year-old Robert Kozik, of Twin Lake Michigan, was thrown from his van that collided with a semi-truck at an intersection last Tuesday night. Kozik died at the hospital.
The 47-year-old man driving the semi was not injured.
