FLANDREAU, S.D. (AP) — A 60-year-old man is dead after he was thrown from a pickup and struck by an SUV on Interstate 29 near Flandreau.

The man was driving a pickup pulling a trailer with a utility terrain vehicle on it when he hit a patch of ice on the interstate and lost control on Saturday. The pickup rolled, and the man, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown onto the southbound lanes. He was struck by an SUV and died at the scene. His name has not been released.

An 11-year-old girl who was a passenger in the pickup suffered minor injuries. The 54-year-old man who was driving the SUV was not hurt. Both were wearing seat belts.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.
