Miller Crash

Two people were airlifted to hospitals following a crash on U-S Highway 14 one west of Miller Friday morning.  A Freightliner semi hauling mail for the U-S Postal Service was westbound when a Dodge Ram pickup crossed the centerline and crashed head-on into the semi. 

The driver of the semi, a 54 year-old male, was transported to Avera Hand County Memorial hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries.   The driver of the pick-up, a 29 year-old male, was also transported to the Miller hospital for serious non-life threatening injuries, but was then airlifted to Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen. 

A passenger, a  24 year-old male sustained life-threatening injuries.  He was not wearing a seat belt and was transported to the Miller hospital, then airlifted to Sioux Falls.  A second passenger, a 56 year-old male was wearing a seat belt. 

He sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Miller hospital and released.  The crash forced a detour of U-S Highway 14 for around seven hours.
