A Platte woman has been identified as the person who died Sunday in a two-vehicle crash west of Freeman.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says that a 2014 Chevrolet Cruz was westbound on South Dakota Highway 44 when the driver failed to follow a roadway curve and the vehicle crossed into the eastbound lane. It collided with an eastbound 2007 Ford Mustang.
51-year-old Terri Gunderson of Platte was the passenger in the Mustang. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, 59-year-old Ronald Hoeltzner of Platte, sustained serious non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the Parkston hospital. Both were wearing seat belts.
19-year-old Morgan Edelman of Menno was the female driver of the Chevrolet. She suffered serious non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the Parkston hospital. She was not wearing a seat belt.
Charges are pending against both drivers.
