Attorney General Ravnsborg involved in crash that included fatality

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – A fatal accident involving South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (rounds-berg) is under investigation.

Governor Kristi Noem made the announcement at a Sioux Falls news conference late yesterday afternoon.

Department of Public Safety Secretary Craig Price says the Highway Patrol is handling the investigation.

Price says he couldn’t release much information at the time.

Price says their accident investigation unit has been on the scene.

Ravnsborg said in a statement “I am shocked and filled with sorrow following the events of last night.” He says he is cooperating with investigators. The North Dakota Attorney Generals Office is helping with the investigation due to possible conflicts of interest.
