REDFIELD, S.D. – A Watertown woman has been identified as the person who died just over a week ago in a one-vehicle crash north of Redfield.

The Highway Patrol says 27 year-old Jessica Jones died when a Toyota Camry was traveling south on U.S. Highway 281 near mile marker 154 when the vehicle crossed two lanes, entered the east ditch, hit a field approach, went airborne, hit a tree, and then landed.

Jones was driving and was dead at the scene.

A 28 year-old passenger, Colin Digby, was transported to the hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries.
