Nurs­ing home hit by car; two killed

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

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.
