BROOKINGS, S.D.–A Volga man has died of injuries sustained in a head-on crash that occurred north of Bruce, South Dakota last week.

The Brookings County Sheriff’s Department says the crash involving a pickup truck and a Yukon Denali happened on the evening of June 14th at the intersection of 468th Avenue and 199th Street.

One of the vehicles failed to move to the side of the road when approaching the crest of the hill, and crashed into the other vehicle.

A passenger in the Denali, 85 year-old Emil Misar, was taken to the Brookings Hospital.

The sheriff’s office learned that Misar died after being transferred to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls.

The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
