The South Dakota Supreme Court is deciding whether a Chester Volunteer Firefighter should be held responsible for crashing into another vehicle while he was responding to a call in his personal pick-up truck.
The justices heard arguments Wednesday morning during their third day of the October term of court at Black Hills State University.
A lawsuit against Chester Volunteer Firefighter Tim Bauman was thrown out of court earlier.
His attorneys say he is protected by South Dakota's Good Samaritan law in responding to an emergency.
But an attorney for the man who was hit by Bauman says the firefighter was driving more than 80 miles per hour in his personal vehicle and was acting recklessly.
Ben Dunsmoor will bring you the arguments from the courtroom later on KELOLAND News.
