SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Authorities in Sioux Falls are investigating a weekend hit-and-run crash that sent a cyclist to a hospital.
The crash happened around 8 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of 22nd Street and Minnesota Avenue.
Police spokesperson Sam Clemens said a white Jeep was stopped at a red light on 22nd Street waiting to turn left onto Minnesota Avenue. When the light turned green, the Jeep turned left and ran into a bicyclist on the crosswalk. The driver of the Jeep stopped briefly, then took off without getting out to check on the cyclist.
The 60-year-old woman driving the bicycle was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital. Clemens did not have an update on her condition.
