Police Give Details Of Hit And Run Suspect's Arrest

Police Give Details Of Hit And Run Suspect's Arrest
Mark Morris

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Sioux Falls police credit the public for helping them find the suspect in Monday's hit and run crash.

At police briefing on Wednesday morning, Lt. Jerome Miller said 33-year-old Mark Morris was arrested Tuesday afternoon after a caller reported a white Honda Civic with front-end damage on Minnesota Avenue. Once officers determined it was the car from the crash at 21st Street and Grange Avenue, they searched for the vehicle's owner.

Miller said that wasn't the only tip officers received. He thanks the public for the countless tips police got on this case.

"The Police Department, while we have a lot of people work here, we cannot do this alone. If it wasn't for the citizens of Sioux Falls and their diligence; their eyes, we wouldn't have found this person," Miller said.

Officers will now spend the next few days going through Morris' vehicle, as they continue to investigate the crash and answer questions like, how fast Morris was going.

Morris is accused of leaving the scene of the hit and run crash Monday morning near Sanford Hospital, which is a felony charge. Miller says, as of last report, the victim, 58-year-old Reva Rezac, remains in critical condition.

Morris, a Sioux Falls resident, is being held in the Minnehaha County Jail. He is expected to make his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
