South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg told authorities that he thought he hit a deer after striking and killing a pedestrian Saturday night, according to the state highway patrol.

During a brief press conference on Sunday evening, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) announced that state Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) was involved in a fatal vehicle accident on Saturday night. Ravnsborg's revelation that he had found the body of the man, 55-year-old Joseph Boever, was the latest twist in a grim incident where information has come out slowly.

The Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash.

A spokesperson for Mr Ravnsborg said he had not been drinking on the night of the crash and that he called 911 immediately after the collision.

Boever's cousin, Victor Nemec, told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader that Boever's truck hit a pile of hay earlier in the day and he was given a ride back home.

The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation will aide in the investigation.

Ravnsborg's chief of staff Timothy Bormann called the episode "a tragic accident" in a statement released Monday. He also inspected the damage to the vehicle and looked for an injured animal, but did not find one, Ravnsborg said.

Wall St closes broadly higher on deal news, vaccine hopes
The rally reversed a big slice of the index's 2.5% slide last week, when the S&P 500 posted its biggest weekly decline since June. Merger-related news also lifted the market, and tech shares performed well but value-related sectors did as well, he said.

Ravnsborg confirmed the crash shortly after the governor's presser, stating that he was "shocked and filled with sorrow following the events of last night".

The DPS didn't mention if Ravnsborg had stopped his vehicle after the accident.

Ravnsborg, a Republican, was elected South Dakota attorney general in 2018, according to his office's website. Local law enforcement is still working on getting a positive identification of the deceased.

Bormann said the attorney general drinks occasionally, but has made it a practice not to drink at the Lincoln Day events.

Boever had phoned his cousin Victor on Saturday morning after he crashed his truck into the hale bale. He said he was supposed to go back to his cousin's home on Sunday to assist in fixing the truck.

Ravnsborg has received six traffic tickets for speeding in South Dakota over the last six years.
