Devon Senter, the 20-year-old driver of the Chrysler, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

William Heese of Belleville, IL, the 63-year-old driver of the pickup, sustained serious non-life threatening injuries and was later transported to a Sioux Falls hospital.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
