One Killed In Accident Near Santee

SANTEE - One person was killed in a one vehicle rollover accident Sunday morning four miles south of Santee. The Nebraska State Patrol reports Crystal Canby, 28, of Lincoln, was a passenger in a van. She was ejected when the vehicle left the road and rolled. A Patrol spokesman says the driver of the van, Sonny RedOwl, 24, of Santee, lost control when a wheel dropped off the road. He overcompensated and ended up on the opposite shoulder. The van started sliding sideways and the left tires deflated causing it to roll over. RedOwl was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton following the 6:05 a.m. accident for treatment of his injuries. The Patrol spokesman says alcohol appeared to have played a factor in the accident.
