RAPID CITY, S.D. - Three people were transported to Rapid City Regional Hospital Saturday after a head-on collision on Deadwood Avenue.

Authorities say a 1983 Chevrolet Pickup occupied by one adult was traveling in the inside southbound lane when it veered into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a 2005 GMC Sierra, carrying two adults traveling northbound.

According to police, all parties involved sustained serious injuries.

"We had three people in the vehicles. All were transported to the hospital - one is with life-threatening injuries, two have severe injuries," said Sgt. Jeff Alexander with the Rapid City Police Department. "Don't know exactly the extent at this point in time, and alcohol is potentially a factor in the accident, and that's under investigation."

Traffic was stopped from Commerce Street to Plant Street for a few hours until the vehicles were removed and the scene was cleared.
