The woman charged with hitting a South Dakota highway patrol trooper with her car in Sioux Falls has not been arrested yet.
Rachel Coleman, 25, is facing charges for attempted murder, assault, battery and her fourth Driving While Intoxicated charge. Coleman was arrested after a chase through Sioux Falls that put South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Andrew Steen, 34, in critical condition.
At Monday's police briefing, Tom Wollman, Lincoln County State's Attorney, said Coleman could be facing additional charges.
Also at police briefing, Wollman said Trooper Steen is still in critical but stable condition. Wollman said he did not want to release information on Coleman's injuries, but he thinks she is still in the hospital.
Wollman said Coleman has a $500,000 cash bond on her warrant, and while charges are only currently being filed in Lincoln County he said the arrest warrant has yet to be served based on the suspect's condition.
Wollman said the arrest warrant has not been served because Coleman is still in the hospital. He said they do not make a practice of serving arrest warrants and pulling people out of critical care to arrest them.
Coleman's first court appearance will be in Canton, which is the Lincoln County courthouse seat. Wollman said Coleman's appearance may be via ITV because initial appearances are often held through ITV.
Wollman said he and Minnehaha County States Attorney Aaron McGowan will be working together in the case.
