Victim in fatal Lawrence County crash identified

BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) - A two-vehicle crash in Lawrence County killed a 25-year-old Belle Fourche man.

The Highway Patrol says Jeremiah Chyba was driving a car that was struck by a pickup truck on state Highway 34 east of Belle Fourche about 7 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say the crash happened when the pickup tried to pass another pickup that was hauling a flatbed trailer, and the passing pickup struck the oncoming car.

Chyba died at the scene. The pickup driver was taken to a Spearfish hospital with what the patrol says were minor injuries.
