Highway Patrol Conducting Joint Operation

Friday, May 26, 2017

South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers and Minnesota State Patrol Troopers will join together to conduct a 23-hour traffic safety operation starting this morning.

The Minnesota State Patrol, South Dakota Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies are participating in the annual I-90 Safety Operation taking place until 4am Saturday.

South Dakota troopers will patrol Interstate 90 from Wyoming to Minnesota while the Minnesota State Patrol covers between South Dakota and Wisconsin. Officials from both states say the goal of the campaign is to help ensure that motorists stay safe.

Troopers will promote highway safety through enforcement, with an emphasis on speed, hazardous moving violations, seatbelt use and impaired driving. The operation includes use of patrol aircraft, personnel with police service dogs, drug recognition experts and motor carrier personnel.

Traffic is expected to be heavy because it is the Memorial Day weekend and the start of the summer travel season. Officials say this is a good time for such a joint operation.

While I-90 is the focus, troopers also will monitor other state and county roads, especially those that might be used to avoid the state-line ports of entry.

Pierre Police Vehicle Involved In Collision

Friday, May 26, 2017

A Pierre police vehicle was involved in a collision Thursday evening.

According to Hughes County Sheriff Mike Leidholt, whose office investigated the accident, the crash occurred at 6:10 pm at the intersection of Dakota and Central in Pierre.

Leidholt says that 26 year old Brittany Olson of Pierre was traveling northbound in a 2014 Ford Escape on Central when she tried stopping at the stop sign, but her flip flop got caught on the brake pedal, causing her foot to slip and she did not stop.  Her vehicle ran into the Pierre Police vehicle, driven by 33 year old Cole Martin of Pierre. Martin was westbound on Dakota.

Leidholt says that the Pierre Police Vehicle received 10,000 dollars in damage and Olson’s vehicle received 6,000 dollars in damage.

Officer Martin was transported as a precaution to Avera St. Mary’s hospital due to a “sore neck.” Olson was cited for a stop sign violation.
