SD Highway Patrol Releases Report: Janklow Speeding

Click here to watch this story(Windows Media) The South Dakota Highway Patrol released their report today. In it they say that Congressman Bill Janklow was driving 70 to 75 miles an hour on a county road when he failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a motorcycle on Saturday. The speed limit on that road is 55 miles an hour. The pictures tell part of the story that started Saturday afternoon when prosecutors say the Cadillac failed to stop on a rural highway. Looking at the 1995 car, you can see the back driver's door is pushed a couple feet into the backseat, where Randy Scott's motorcycle hit the car. There are two deflated airbags, the driver's and passenger's, and the windshield is shattered in two places.
A crowd of almost two-dozen cameras and reporters from Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota television stations, radio and newspapers came to get photos of the wreckage.
Instead of Hardwick, Minnesota, Randy Scott's home, this is where his Harley Davidson sits today. The front wheel is off of the 55-year-old's bike and pieces of grass and dirt still stick out from the wheels and seat. Remnants of the rural road and the accident scene where Scott lost his life. As for the blood alcohol levels, tests were taken from Janklow and Scott. We were told those results would be available yesterday, but have not been given that information. And although we often find out a driver's blood alcohol level shortly after an accident, Moody County State's Attorney Bill Ellingson, sent a press release today saying those tests cannot be public knowledge before a trial. As for when or if charges would be filed against Janklow? Ellingson says he will not set a deadline for when he'll decide about charges, if any. He said he must receive all the reports and then take time to study them. SD Highway Patrol Report:(PDF Files)
