A Flandreau man is killed in a single-vehicle crash near Wagner.
It happened just past midnight Saturday morning when an SUV
driven by 57-year-old James Russell Weddell lost control at the
spot where the roadway changed from pavement to gravel.
The vehicle went into the east ditch, then crossed the roadway and
entered the west ditch, where it rolled. Weddell was not wearing a
seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. He died at the scene.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.
