Officials: Man struck by South Dakota AG’s car died from ‘traumatic injuries’

Oct. 14 (UPI) — Officials in South Dakota have released the autopsy report of the pedestrian Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg struck with his vehicle last month, stating the man died of traumatic injuries.

South Dakota’s Public Safety Secretary Craig Price made the announcement Tuesday during a press conference on the investigation into the death of 55-year-old Joseph Boever.

Last month, Gov. Kristi Noem said an investigation had been opened into a crash on the night of Sept. 12 involving Ravnsborg that resulted in Boever’s death.

Ravnsborg told the public shortly after in a statement that he was driving home from a dinner during which he did not drink when he struck what he believed to be a deer and that he was the one to call the crash into the authorities. He also said he was the one to discover Boever’s body on inspecting the crash site the next day.
