Teen Dies In Three-Vehicle Crash

ARLINGTON, S.D. (AP) — A 17-year-old Badger girl has died following a three-vehicle crash near Arlington that involved a school bus carrying students.

The Highway Patrol says Savannah Koistinen, of Badger, was eastbound on U.S. Highway 14 Monday evening when she was struck from behind by another vehicle driven by 25-year-old Cynthia Holmquest of Sioux Falls.

Koistinen’s car was forced into the westbound line of traffic and collided with a school bus carrying students.

Koistinen died at the scene of the crash. Two passengers were transported to local hospitals with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. All were wearing seatbelts.

The students suffered minor injuries.

Holmquest was cited for careless driving. She was not injured.  She is a Sioux Falls police officer. She remains active while officials investigate.
