Rollover Accident Near Yankton Sends Two To Hospital

Yankton area law enforcement responded to a rollover accident just east of Yankton on Old Highway 50 shortly after 5:15 PM Wednesday.

After the officer approached the vehicle, the vehicle went into reverse, striking the police vehicle. Subsequently, a pursuit was initiated and the vehicle left town headed east of Highway 50. The vehicle later left the roadway and rolled just east of Fleegs Roadhouse.

The 2006 Buick Rendezvous was driven by 43-year-old Desiree RedWillow of Sioux Falls. Both the Driver and Passenger 35-year-old Skye Burnham-Endicott were ejected from the vehicle. Both individuals were taken to the Avera Sacred Heart Hospital with unknown injuries.

Parker adds that the vehicle was stolen out of Sioux Falls and the passenger in the vehicle was on parole. They both have pending charges. Alcohol was a factor in the accident.
