Trooper Injured In Interstate Crash
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper was taken to the hospital Tuesday night following a crash on Interstate 29.

The Highway Patrol says the trooper was helping who slid into the median on the interstate south of the Brookings exit at 5:15 p.m. when a Chevy Blazer headed north-bound hit the back of the patrol car going 70 miles per hour. The Blazer was trying to pass another vehicle when it lost control on the icy road.

The trooper was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries and has already been released.

After hitting the patrol car the Blazer hit the vehicle it was trying to pass, knocking that car off the road. No one else was injured, but the crash left three vehicles damaged.

The driver of the Blazer was cited for overdriving the road conditions.

Firefighters on the scene say blowing snow has made the area a troublesome spot for drivers all day. They say the conditions led to another crash earlier, which prompted salt and sand trucks to treat the stretch of the interstate.

This is the 13th trooper hit on South Dakota roads this winter.
