Signs mark spots where three died in crashes in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Signs will mark the spots where three people died in traffic crashes in South Dakota last year.

A sign that says "think" marks the spot where Terry Brown, 51, of Rapid City was struck and killed last December by an alleged drunken driver. Family members said the sign will help them remember and also send a message about the consequences of drinking and driving.

On Thursday, friends and family of Gwen Michalek, 56, of Chamberlain and Ellen Wright, 61, of Lower Brule were dedicating a sign in their memory. The women were driving in separate vehicles that went into a washout on a tribal highway between Reliance and Lower Brule and were carried away in rushing water after torrential rains a year ago.
