Police release names of victims in Sioux Falls motorcycle crash
Sioux Falls Police have released the names of the two men involved in Tuesday's deadly motorcycle crash.
Police responded to the single-motorcycle crash at 26th Street and Kiwanis Avenue at 2:49 a.m. Tuesday. The motorcycle crashed into a chain-link fence located on the west side of Kiwanis Avenue.
23-year-old Jacob Huggett, of Long Prairie, MN, was driving the motorcycle. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 20-year-old Tobben Aeschliman, of Sioux Falls, was hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries. Police did not have an update on his conditions.
Lt. Jerome Miller provided an update on the investigation during Wednesday's police briefing. Miller said it will take about a week for lab results to come back so investigators can determine if alcohol or drugs were a factor.
Miller said Huggett and Aeschliman were at a house party in the area before the crash happened.
At Tuesday's police briefing, Miller said speed could have been a factor in the case. During Wednesday's update Miller said Huggett tried to brake the motorcycle before the crash. Miller said there were significant skid mars at the scene.
