An Odessa, Texas, man has been identified as the person who died Friday in a one-vehicle crash northeast of Reva, S.D.


Joe Vanhemert, 67, was driving a 1990 Peterbilt 379 semi-truck and flatbed trailer northbound on Highway 79 when the passenger-side tires dropped off the east shoulder of the roadway. Vanhemert corrected the semi onto the roadway, but the trailer stayed in the ditch, causing the tractor-trailer combination to roll.


Vanhemert was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a seatbelt.


South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.


The Highway Patrol is part of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.
