Last Tuesday night, a two-vehicle crash south of Sioux Falls claimed the life of a man from Centerville, South Dakota.
A 2022 Subaru Outback Touring SUV was going north on Interstate 29 when it went off the road, crossed the median, and struck the trailer of a 2015 Freightliner TR semi-truck and trailer, according to preliminary incident data. The SUV was the first to burn. Jerry Null, the SUV’s 69-year-old driver, had to be extricated and was pronounced dead on the scene.
There were no casualties among the people inside the semi-two vehicle. Noel Medina, 44, of Chaparral, New Mexico, was the driver. Gabriel Herrera, a 35-year-old resident of El Paso, Texas, was the traveler.
Seatbelts were used to restrain all three accident victims.
