LAKE POINSETT, S.D. (KELO) — Authorities are investigating a multi-car crash near Lake Poinsett.
The Hamlin County Sheriff’s Office says the incident happened Thursday morning when a semi pulling a tanker trailer stalled. Authorities say a truck then hit the semi, before driving away.
Once crews were on scene, investigators say an SUV nearly hit a deputy and fire fighter before colliding with the semi. The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital.
A deputy was able to locate the driver of the truck — a 25-year-old Watertown man was arrested for Hit and Run and Property Damage.
Separate investigations are underway for the two crashes.
