No Fatalities Reported on State Highways Over Holiday
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Department of Public Safety says no one was killed on South Dakota highways over the Memorial Day holiday.
This is the third year in the last four years that the state received no reports of fatalities on South Dakota highways during the holiday weekend. South Dakota highways were fatality-free in 2010 and 2011. One person was killed during the Memorial Day reporting period in 2012.
Col. Craig Price with the South Dakota Highway Patrol says a fatality-free Memorial Day weekend is a great way to start the summer travel season.
The holiday weekend was also the start of a summer-long safety campaign to reduce highway crashes and increase safety on South Dakota’s roadways.
