7/5/13
 
An Avon, South Dakota man is killed in a Wednesday three-vehicle crash 
about five 5 miles west of Tyndall.
 
Forty-eight-year-old Todd Schwering of Avon was driving a motorcycle 
west on SD Highway 50. He approached from behind, a slow moving 
westbound farm tractor driven by 66-year-old Anthony Eben of Tyndall. 
The tractor was towing a sprayer and sprayer boom.
 
As Schwering entered the eastbound lane to pass the farm tractor, he hit 
a part of the sprayer which caused him to crash his motorcycle. Schwering 
was thrown from the bike and came to rest lying in the eastbound lane.
 
Seventy-six-year-old Duane Rothschadl of Tyndall was driving an eastbound 
car that ran over Schwering. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.
