The accident occurred early Monday morning on U.S. Highway 83, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) north of Valentine. Cherry County Attorney Eric Scott says 68-year-old Philomene Redbull, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was killed when her pickup truck collided head-on with another vehicle driven by a Texas man.
The other driver was identified as 35-year-old Jesus Rodriquez, of Houston. He was taken to Cherry County Hospital. A hospital spokesman said Thursday that there was no patient by that name at the hospital.
