The patrol says 60-year-old Virgil Nogowski, of Gwinner, died Tuesday when he was struck by a minivan along Sargent County Road 10 where his crew was placing was warning signs along the shoulder.

Authorities say a Britton, South Dakota woman swerved to avoid the crew’s pickup truck and veered into the ditch. She was not hurt.
