GETTYSBURG, S.D.–The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a second person has died of injuries sustained in a head-on crash on U.S. Highway 212, 16 miles west of Gettysburg last month.

Thirty five year-old Joseph Skye of Rapid City, who was a passenger in a car, died at the scene of the June 18th crash.

The Highway Patrol says the woman driving the car, 24 year-old Mariah LeBeau of Aberdeen, was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital, and now she too has died of her injuries.

The car collided head-on with a pickup driven by 19 year-old  Calen Decker of Gettysburg, who was not injured.
