A Lyon County sheriff's deputy has died from injuries received in an August ninth single-vehicle accident.

Schreurs was driving a police SUV on K-52 entering a sharp curve to the right. The vehicle left the roadway, entered the ditch, vaulted a driveway, and rolled.

Officials say Schreurs was flown by air ambulance to a hospital in Sioux Falls. The crash remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
