The attorney general of South Dakota, Jason Ravnsborg, struck and killed a man on Saturday night while driving home from a Republican fundraising dinner.
The Republican governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, said during a press conference yesterday that Ravnsborg had been involved but uninjured in a fatal car accident, but she did not provide further details.
Ravnsborg, a 44-year-old from Pierre, was driving a sedan westbound on U.S. Highway 14 on Saturday night. He told the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office that around 10:30 p.m. he hit a deer a mile west of Highmore.
The release does not say if Ravnsborg stopped to confirm that he hit a deer or inspect his vehicle for damage. It also doesn’t say if Ravnsborg called 911, the non-emergency line or someone from the office. The Journal has requested audio recordings of this call and all other calls related to the crash.
ABC News will host a town will with Trump tomorrow, two days before Joe Biden participates in a CNN town hall in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
ABC said in a statement, “Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos will anchor the event, which will provide uncommitted voters a chance to ask the President their important questions before voting.”
