WATERTOWN, S.D.–The Brookings County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a hit and run accident on Interstate 29 that sent one person to the hospital.

It happened Tuesday night around 7:30 near mile marker 126, south of Brookings.

A white Chevy Silverado pickup pulling a flatbed trailer was passing a Ford Expedition when it made contact with the Expedition, sending it into the median where it rolled.

The pickup did not stop, continuing southbound.

The driver of the Expedition–33 year-old Brian Fett of Dell Rapids–was taken to the Brookings Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

An eyewitness was able to provide deputies with a description of the pickup, but no arrests have been made.

The investigation is ongoing by the sheriff’s department.
