SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A crash slowed down traffic at a busy intersection in downtown Sioux Falls this morning.
It happened just before 11 at 14th and Phillips… just down the block from the KELOLAND studio.
And while we report on a lot of crashes, a KELOLAND employee caught this one on camera.
A KELOLAND employee, in his personal vehicle, had his dashcam rolling when he stopped on Phillips Avenue around 10:45 Wednesday morning.
As the light switched to green you can see traffic start to enter the intersection… and moments later a black SUV flies through an what appears to be a red light… slamming into the side of a van.
Our downtown live cam could see the aftermath as emergency crews started to arrive. You can see drivers trying to safely navigate around the crash.
Our camera was there as an ambulance arrived, along with a fire truck and several police officers, both in cruisers and on bikes, responded.
As crews worked to investigate and clean up the debris, a majority of the intersection was blocked, reducing eastbound traffic to a single lane.
At least one person was taken away in an ambulance.
We’re still waiting to hear from police for additional information on the crash and investigation.
