TEA, S.D. – One person died Friday morning in a two-vehicle crash four miles southeast of Tea.

The Highway Patrol says a Dodge Durango was westbound when the driver lost control due to snow and ice on the roadway. The vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with an eastbound semi-truck and trailer.

The 71-year-old woman driving the Dodge was dead at the scene.

The 32-year-old man driving the semi was not injured.
