OELRICHS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a 49-year old woman was killed and a 47-year old man suffered minor injuries early Sunday morning in a one-vehicle crash on Highway 18/79 about a mile north of Oelrichs.

     Names have not yet been released and authorities haven't determined yet whether the woman or man was the driver.

      The Patrol says their older model car was westbound around 1:15 am when it crossed the fog line and went onto the shoulder. The driver over-corrected and lost control with the car coming back across the westbound lanes and into the median where it  tipped over.

       The woman, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene. The man received minor injuries, but whether he was using his seatbelt remains under investigation, received minor injuries.
