Crooks teen cited in hit-and-run that killed 3 horses
SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Authorities in Minnehaha County have cited a teenager in a hit-and-run incident that killed three horses.
The sheriff's office says the horses escaped from a fenced area on Sept. 14 and were struck by a pickup truck. The driver left the scene without reporting the crash.
The sheriff's office says it received a tip on Monday that led officers to a 17-year-old boy from Crooks. Capt. James Hoekman says the boy hit the horses while driving to work and didn't report it because he did not have insurance on the vehicle.
He was cited for not reporting the accident and for not having insurance. Authorities did not identify him.
