PIERRE, S.D. — The Highway Patrol has identified the victims of fatal crashes last week in Kingsbury and Meade counties.

Authorities say 52-year-old Crystal Morell, of Lake Preston, died Wednesday after she lost control of her car and it rolled in the ditch off a rural road north of the town.

The same day, 71-year-old Kathleen Moulton, of Piedmont, died when the sport utility vehicle she was driving clipped a semitrailer on Interstate 90 west of Rapid City and rolled in the ditch.
