SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Sheriff Steve Swenson of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department gave us these tips for if you get in a crash on the interstate.

  • Make sure everyone in the vehicle is okay.
  • If there is an injury or the vehicle is disabled, you need to call 911.
  • If the vehicle is drivable, get it off the roadway and stay in your car.
  • If your vehicle is undrivable, first check to make sure your surroundings are safe, then get out of your vehicle, and go all the way to the fenceline off the interstate.
  • Stay out of the median and use your hazard lights.
