SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Highway Patrol says one person has died and three others have been injured in a highway crash involving a semi west of Sioux Falls.

Authorities say a 19-year-old woman died when the car she was driving was struck from behind by a minivan as she waited to turn off Highway 42 and was pushed into the path of a semi. The teen died at the scene. A 10-year-old boy in her vehicle suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Sioux Falls.

The driver of the minivan and the semi sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

Officials say charges are possible against the driver of the minivan. The crash Thursday evening closed Highway 42 for several hours.
