A man suffered fatal injuries during a four-wheeler accident Sunday in Dell Rapids, according to Sgt. Preston Evans of the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office.
Metro Communications received a call at 1:58 p.m. of a single-occupant accident near the corner of Washington Avenue and 4th Street in Dell Rapids.
First responders found Brian Koster, 44, unresponsive lying near the curb, and an ATV lying upside down in the roadway.
Evans said medical personnel attempted to resuscitate Koster at the scene and during the ambulance transport to Dells Avera Hospital where Koster later died from a head injury.
Evans said Koster was traveling eastbound on Fourth Street when he lost control of the vehicle.
Eye witnesses, three children who were outside playing near the crash, told authorities Koster was traveling faster than the speed limit, but Evans said itís not yet known if speed led to the crash.
The official cause of the accident is still under investigation.
