FORT PIERRE, S.D.–An 18-year-old man from Fort Pierre died and three others were injured in a UTV accident early Saturday morning in central South Dakota.

Stanley County Sheriff Brad Rathbun says two 18-year-olds, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old were riding through a pasture in a side-by-side about one mile west of Fort Pierre when the UTV rolled just after 1:30 in the morning.

One of the men was able to call 911 but didn’t know their location.

The individuals were found by emergency crews around 3:20 a.m.

Eighteen year-old Hayden Monson, a passenger in the side-by-side, was dead at the scene.
