Yankton Co. Sheriff investigates fatal pedestrian crash

Posted: Updated:

The Yankton County Sheriff's Office is investigating a crash that left one pedestrian dead and put another in the hospital.

It happened Thursday afternoon on West City Limits Road in Yankton.

Two women had parked on the northbound shoulder and were crossing the road when they were struck by an SUV.  The driver was a 15-year-old male. 

81-year-old Eleanor Shane of Viborg died as a result of her injuries. 

57-year-old Margaret Wrigg of Viborg received non-life-threatening injuries and is in the ICU of a Yankton hospital Thursday night. 

The Chief Deputy with the Yankton County Sheriff's Office says alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.  He says the juvenile may have been adjusting the radio, but an official cause has yet to be determined.
