SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Highway Patrol says icy roads contributed to a fatal accident on an interstate bridge in Sioux Falls.

The patrol says one person died and another was injured in a rollover crash on Interstate 229 about 9 p.m. Tuesday. A portion of the interstate was closed for several hours as the scene was cleared.

A winter weather advisory was issued Tuesday night because of icy conditions. Several crashes were reported on Interstate 229 and 29 around Sioux Falls because of slippery roads.
