MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A crash involving two vehicles and cattle on Interstate 90 has killed a man and injured several other people near Mitchell.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a Dodge Durango was westbound on the interstate Saturday night when it struck six cows that had entered the road. The SUV came to a stop in the passing lane and was struck from the rear by a Chevrolet Impala.

Authorities say the 39-year-old man who was driving the Impala died at a Mitchell hospital. The patrol says he was not wearing a seat belt.

A 10-year-old girl who was a passenger in the Durango suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital. A 33-year-old woman in the SUV was seriously injured.

The interstate was closed for about two hours.
