SISSETON, S.D. — One person is dead and another seriously injured after a pickup crash in northeastern South Dakota.

The Highway Patrol says a 2007 Ford Crew Cab was southbound on Interstate 29 when it left the road and rolled north of Sisseton Saturday morning.

A 23-year-old woman who was a passenger was thrown from the pickup and died at the scene. The 28-year-old man who was driving suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital in Fargo, North Dakota.

Neither was wearing a seat belt. Authorities say charges are pending against the driver.
