Carol J. Olson Obituary, Woman identified in Meade County fatal crash

Carol J. Olson Obituary,  – On Friday morning, an unfortunate incident occurred near Sturgis, SD, resulting in the death of an 83-year-old woman. The incident involved a trailered boat that became unhitched and collided head-on with the woman’s vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, identified as Carol J. Olson, was traveling south on SD Highway 79 around mile marker 124.

Simultaneously, Cody A. Thomson was driving a 2022 Ford F-350, pulling a trailer with a pontoon boat, in the opposite direction. However, the trailer coupler disconnected from the pickup, and the safety chains failed to control the trailer and boat. As a result, the trailer and boat veered into the southbound lane, ultimately colliding with Olson’s Chrysler.

The collision caused the trailer, boat, and Chrysler to land on the southbound shoulder and in the west ditch. Tragically, Olson sustained fatal injuries in the accident. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries to the driver and passenger of the pickup truck. The South Dakota Highway Patrol is currently investigating the crash to determine the exact cause and circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident.
