Mayor of Irene dies in crash, Friday night

Posted: Updated:

Two people were killed in a two-car crash just north of Yankton, Friday. One of those people was 64-year-old Lloyd Mork, mayor of Irene, SD.

Becky Marie Leapley, 57, of Yankton, was driving southbound when her vehicle crossed the center line into the oncoming lane. Mork was northbound driving a Chevy pickup. He then moved into the southbound lane but Leapley's vehicle returned to that lane. The vehicles collided head-on and came to rest in the middle of the highway.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. Both were dead at the scene.

No further information is immediately available.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. Yankton County Sheriff's Office, Yankton Fire and Rescue and Yankton Emergency Medical Service assisted.
