Couple survive hit and run accident

Dawn Rye | Writer

On Thursday, July 4 at approximately 11:30 p.m. the Turner County Sheriff’s Office, Marion Fire and Ambulance and Parker Ambulance were called to a motorcycle accident just east of Marion on SD Hwy 44. 

According to Turner County Sheriff Steven Luke, Deputy Charles Pulford responded to the call involving Adam and Michelle Stewart of Marion. 

The Signal One Accident, which means it is an injury accident involving a motorcycle, has been taken over by the South Dakota Highway Patrol, because of it’s location. 

“Luckily they were wearing helmets which is why it ended so well,” said Luke about the couple’s injuries. 

He noted his office has reported the accident as a hit and run. 

He explained the sheriff’s office has a few leads and will continue to investigate the matter. Luke said his office has pinpointed out a location where the suspected driver who caused the accident may live. He explained the driver has not been officially identified but Luke believes they may live west of Turner County. 

Luke said if anyone in the community knows details regarding the accident or the where-a-bouts of a black Volkswagen Jetta with extensive front-end damage, they are encouraged to contact the sheriff’s office at 605.297.3225.
