Sioux Falls police have released the name of the man who died in the fatal crash at 41st Street and Minnesota Avenue Thursday afternoon.

Troy Hohn, 32, of Sioux Falls was driving the Chevy Blazer that was in the crash. He was dead at the scene.

The crash happened just after noon Thursday, February 14. Eye witnesses say Hohn's vehicle was traveling anywhere from 60 to 100 mph. Police are still investigating the cause of the accident and what speed Hohn may have been traveling.  

they don't know if Hohn had a medical condition that played a role in the crash.

Three children were taken to the hospital in the crash. Lt. Miller said two of the children were released from the hospital. Miller said others in the crash suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Prior to the collision a 1998 Buick Century occupied once was stopped at the 41st Street red light in the outside northbound lane of Minnesota Avenue. A 1991 Chevy pickup was behind the Buick and a 2001 Chevy Durango, occupied by five people, was stopped behind the pickup.

A 1998 Chevy Blazer was traveling at an extremely fast high rate of speed and struck the Durango, which was pushed into the pickup, which was pushed into the Buick.

The Buick was pushed into two eastbound vehicles on 41st Street that were legally crossing the intersection. The Buick hit a Ford pickup and a Chevy minivan.

After the Chevy Blazer hit the Durango, it veered into the Taylor's Pantry gas station at the southeast corner of that intersection. The Blazer vaulted off the sign, struck a parked, unoccupied Chrysler minivan and stopped upside down near the gas pumps.

A small fire started on the Blazer. It was quickly extinguished by first responders.

This was probably one of the more larger vehicle crashes we're accustomed with, Lt. Jerome Miller said at Friday's police briefing.
