the semi and fled the scene and was later located and arrested for hit and run property damage. A blue
SUV heading north on HWY 81 also collided with the semi. The driver of that vehicle was taken by
Lake Norden ambulance to the hospital. The intersection was closed for about 3 hours.
The Hamlin county Sheriff’s office is investigating the first crash, the SD HWY patrol investigating the
