PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) - Oglala Sioux officials have released details of a crash on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation that killed a family from Wanblee.

The Rapid City Journal reports that the crash last Saturday killed 42-year-old Waylon Red Elk Sr., his 34-year-old pregnant wife, Jaylene Pretends Eagle, and their 1-year-old son, Waylon Red Elk Jr.
