Traffic slowed by crash investigation on I-29 near Tea exit

Posted: Updated:

As officers work to clear an accident scene on Interstate 29, traffic could be slowed, the Department of Public Safety said.

South Dakota Highway Patrol and Department of Transportation officials caution travelers on I-29 that traffic could be slowed temporarily because of an incident Thursday afternoon near the Tea exit.

Captain Kevin Joffer of the Highway Patrol said a northbound dump truck with its box raised struck an overhead highway sign. When the sign fell to the roadway, it struck a vehicle. An occupant in the vehicle was injured but further details are not immediately available.

Traffic was backed up on that section of interstate while debris from the overhead sign was cleared.

Joffer said traffic flow has been restored, but is likely to be reduced to one lane temporarily as the investigation continues. He asked motorists traveling along Interstate 29 to be aware of that possibility between Exit 75 and Exit 73 for the rest of the afternoon.
