Brookings man dies of injuries sustained in Saturday rollover

A 31-year-old Brookings man has died of injuries sustained in a one-vehicle crash that occurred early Saturday morning north of Brookings.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol released the information on the crash Tuesday afternoon.

A pickup was headed north at about 5:30 am on 470th Avenue when the driver lost control. The vehicle went into the east ditch, went back across the roadway and into the west ditch where it rolled.

The driver, 31-year-old Andrew Dahl, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle.

He suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported via ambulance to the Brookings hospital and then airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital. He died there on Monday.
