Names have been released of the two men who died Wednesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash north of Tyndall.
A 2014 Yamaha Side-by-Side was westbound on South Dakota Highway 46 and was turning south into a driveway when it was struck by an eastbound 1993 Plymouth Voyager. The two vehicles rolled into the south ditch.
Both Richard Zander of Scotland, S.D., the 57-year-old driver of the side-by-side, and David Painter of Avon, S.D., the 69-year-old driver of the Voyager, were pronounced dead at the scene. Neither man was wearing a seat belt.
South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. All information released so far is only preliminary.
The Highway Patrol is part of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.
