Pedestrian Fatality in Sioux Falls Sunday Night
UPDATE: The man who died in the Sunday night car-pedestrian accident has been identified. He was Lugene Cogshell of Sioux Falls.
The driver of the vehicle was cited for no proof of insurance. At this time, police believe the vehicle was traveling at 30 miles an hour at the time of the accident. The speed limit through that area of 57th Street is 40 miles per hour.
