REVA – One man died Friday in a single-vehicle crash northeast of Reva.

The incident happened on Highway 79, 25 miles northeast of Reva.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol, A 1990 Peterbilt 379 semi-truck and flatbed trailer was northbound on Highway 79 when the passenger-side tires dropped off the east shoulder of the roadway. The driver corrected the semi onto the roadway, but the trailer stayed in the ditch, causing the tractor-trailer combination to roll.
