WESSINGTON, S.D. — Authorities have identified a Virgil man who died in a two-vehicle crash in Beadle County last weekend.

The Highway Patrol says 25-year-old Jeffrey Airheart was driving a pickup truck that crossed the center line on U.S. Highway 14 and collided head-on with another pickup Sunday afternoon. He was flown to a Sioux Falls hospital, where he later died.

The other driver suffered minor injuries.
