Trooper Hit-And-Run Suspect In Court

Trooper Hit-And-Run Suspect In Court
Rachel Coleman

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls woman accused of running over a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper made her first court appearance Thursday morning.

Authorities say 25-year-old Rachel Coleman led the trooper on a high speed chase through Sioux Falls last month.

According to court papers, Coleman led Trooper Andrew Steen down 57th Street to Western Avenue where officials tried to stop her car in the parking lot of a strip mall.  Trooper Steen had gotten out of his car after Coleman hit his car and others when he drew his gun and shot at Coleman. She tried to leave the scene and hit him with her car.

Steen is now hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

Coleman was also injured, was released from the hospital Wednesday and immediately arrested.  She is charged with first degree attempted murder, felony hit and run, multiple charges of aggravated assault on law enforcement and her fourth DWI.

She faces up to 66 years in prison.  But the Lincoln County States Attorney plans to file additional papers which could change that.

KELOLAND's Ben Dunsmoor was in the courtroom to bring you more details from the hearing later today on KELOLAND News and KELOLAND.com.
