Minn. Man Dies In Single-Vehicle Accident In SD

EDEN, S.D. (AP) — A 50-year-old Minnesota man has died after a one-vehicle crash in northeastern South Dakota.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says Peyton St. John, of Browns Valley, Minn., was a passenger in a car with two other men when the driver of the northbound car lost control along Marshal County 16 Tuesday. The car rolled several times, throwing all three men from the car. None were wearing seatbelts.

Peyton St. John died at the scene. The driver, Gordon St. John, of Sisseton, S.D., and another passenger, 32-year-old Frederick Crawford, of Peever, S.D., were taken to a Sisseton hospital and then transferred to a Fargo, N.D., hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the crash.
