ELK POINT, S.D. (AP) — A 38-year-old woman has died in a crash on Interstate 29 about 15 miles north of Elk Point in southeastern South Dakota.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a minivan was southbound on I-29 just before 3:45 a.m. Saturday when it entered the median, then crossed both northbound lanes, went into the west ditch and rolled.

The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the van. She died at the scene. Her name was not immediately released.

The freeway was closed and traffic was rerouted for about an hour.
