Police Urging Drivers to Slow Down

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Falls police want drivers to slow down, following an accident involving a young girl.

It happened around 4 o'clock yesterday, in the 12-hundred block of North Minnesota Avenue.  Police say the child ran into the northbound lanes and was chased by her mother trying to catch her.  Both were hit by a car and taken to the hospital.  Their injuries were non-life threatening.

"In this case, I don't know if there was necessarily anything that could have been done to prevent this, but it's always a reminder for people that they need to make sure they're driving the speed limit," said Officer Sam Clemens of the Sioux Falls Police Department.

No citations were issues and alcohol was not a factor.
