DescriptionSouth Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg was involved in a fatal car accident at approximately 10:30 p.m. Saturday while driving on U.S. Highway 14 just west of Highmore, according to Gov. Kristi Noem.

She announced the news late Sunday afternoon during a brief meeting with reporters in Sioux Falls that included her and South Dakota Department of Public Safety Craig Price.

“There was a fatality and law enforcement is working on identifying the deceased and notifying the family,” she said. “South Dakota Highway Patrol will run the investigation.”

She added that Price will oversee the investigation and report to her.

Price also spoke to reporters at the Sunday press briefing. The South Dakota Highway Patrol is an agency that is under the authority of the state Department of Public Safety.

“We are currently working the investigation as referenced by Gov. Noem in Hyde County,” he said. “The South Dakota Highway Patrol routinely investigates fatality crashes across our state and we will handle this as we would any other fatal crash.”
