Huron teens die in crash

ALPENA, S.D. — Two Huron teenagers died Sunday in a one-vehicle

rollover accident on 92nd Avenue approximately one-quarter mile south

of 220th Street near Alpena, according to the state Department of

Public Safety.

Emmanuel Martinez, 16, was driving a 2003 Cadillac CTS on 392nd Avenue

when he lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a curve around

3:55 p.m. The vehicle entered the east ditch, then slid across the

highway, rolled several times and came to rest in the west ditch.

Martinez died at the scene.

Passenger Marisol Corona, 16, also of Huron, was transported to the

Huron Regional Medical Center by ambulance and later transferred to

Sanford Health, in Sioux Falls, where she died of her injuries.

Neither teen was wearing a seat belt and both were ejected from the vehicle.
