Fatal Car Show Crash: 'Everybody Was There To Have A Good Time'

Fatal Car Show Crash: 'Everybody Was There To Have A Good Time'
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A 43-year-old Sioux Falls woman is dead and a 13-year-old boy is in the hospital after a runaway driver hit them Sunday night.

Police arrested 47-year-old Lois Two Bulls for hitting the two pedestrians at a Salvation Army car show Sunday.

Authorities say Two Bulls didn't have a license or insurance, but her defense attorney says she does have a seizure disorder.

The car show was being held in the Salvation Army parking lot on North Cliff Avenue. Police say Two Bulls drove through the lot and across the street where she struck three pedestrians just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

One of the pedestrians walked away with only minor injuries but that wasn't the case for a 43-year-old woman who died and 13-year-old Skyler Burchardi who has a broken pelvis, jaw and a concussion.

"Other people were scared he was going to die. I mean the head injury was a pretty large smack and how he could survive that is just amazing," Skyler's uncle Tony Burchardi said Monday.

Tony says Skyler was thrown into the nearby Salvation Army Thrift Store building. He says his nephew was standing next to the 43-year-old woman who was killed by the impact. She was pinned between the van and a tree. Police have not released her name.

"She didn't hit anybody inside the lot. She didn't hit any of the vehicles that were parked in the lot. At least one of the witnesses said it seemed like she was accelerating as she went through the lot," Sam Clemens with Sioux Falls Police said.

A defense attorney for Two Bulls said in court Monday that her client has a seizure disorder and pointed out that a breathalyzer showed she was sober at the scene.

Defense: Driver In Fatal Crash Has Seizure Disorder

Two Bulls told police that she doesn't remember the crash and thought she was driving into an open parking spot.

It's a crash that has caused a lifetime of pain for the family of the 43-year-old woman who died.

It's also a crash that has a 13-year-old boy facing surgery and a long recovery.

"Everybody was there to have a good time. How she managed to do what she did I have no idea," Burchardi said.

Two Bulls is being held on a $50,000 bond. She has been charged with second degree manslaughter.
