Nursing home hit by car; two killed
ALCESTER, S.D. — At least two people were killed and six hurt when a car slammed into a group of people and then into a nursing home Monday in southeast South Dakota in an apparent accident, authorities said.
Highway Patrol spokesman Tony Mangan said investigators believe that the crash at Alcester Care and Rehab Center was accidental on the basis of descriptions from witnesses, but he had no immediate detail. He said the driver — identified by the city police chief as a woman — was among those taken to a hospital.
Mangan had no immediate information about the conditions of the injured, whom he said were taken to hospitals in Sioux Falls and Hawarden, Iowa, and Sioux City, Iowa. None of the victims of the crash were immediately identified.
