WHITEWOOD, S.D. — Three men were killed in early October after their 2015 Maserati Ghibli struck a semi-truck going 147 miles per hour, according to the traffic accident report published by the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

The crash happened Oct. 6 at about 2 p.m. The vehicle was heading east on Interstate 90 near mile marker 25, just east of Whitewood, when it approached the semi-truck, striking the back end and ripping off the roof to the Maserati.
