One dead following head-on crash in Watertown

WATERTOWN, S.D. (KWAT) — A Watertown woman driving into work at Sparton was killed this morning in a head-on crash on U.S. Highway 212.

43-year-old Dawn Meyer was dead at the scene of the crash.

Watertown Assistant Police Chief Tim Toomey talked about the accident.

Toomey says they’re not prepared to say what caused the crash.

Toomey says Meyer’s car appears to have spun around a couple of times after impact, eventually rolling onto its side.

Highway 212 was closed between 19th Street and Willow Creek Drive while the crash was investigated.

Toomey says the crash also left a large debris field that required clean up from the Watertown Street Department.
