Some follow up on South Dakota AG crash

Post by Joe Bobcat » Sun Oct 18, 2020 12:49 pm

About a month ago there was some discussion here about the AG crash in South Dakota. It must have been under some other topic because I couldn't find it.
A friend of mine from that neck of the woods sent me some new info on it so I thought I'd share it for those interested here.

I remain quite certain that he knew pretty well that it wasn't a deer he had hit. They haven't finished and released the final reports but from the couple pictures I've seen of the car most likely the man hit and killed died instantly. It remains a bad and sad accident for everyone involved.

I was reading this today. After toxicology reports came back negative, I guess my question would be if he didn’t have anything in his system, what did he have to hide?

I agree it seems crazy to me to think I could run over a person and not know it’s a person. But if I’m understanding right he called authorities correct? And wasn’t under the influence?

Such a weird, sad deal.

Yes, very strange.

The blood test for drug and alcohol was taken about 15 hours after the accident. That's a long time.
From the pictures of his car it would appear that he didn't run over anything but rather the object he hit (which turned out to be a man) went up into the front windshield. It sounds like at least 3 separate expert crash investigator teams are studying the case. It will be interesting to see how their analysis match up.

Ah yes. I forgot that the test was so long after the accident. That in and of itself is fishy to me. The investigations are going to be interesting.
