Sioux Falls man faces vehicular homicide charges

A Sioux Falls man is facing possible vehicular homicide charges following an alcohol-related single-vehicle crash that resulted in his wife’s death, according to the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s department.

The man was headed west on his motorcycle, with his wife riding passenger, when he rounded a bend too sharply on 268th Street near Iowa’s Gitchie Manitou State Park. The motorcycle spun out of control, throwing both the man and his wife off.

Emergency personnel who arrived at the scene around 7 p.m. reported that both the man and woman were responsive at the time. The woman passed out shortly thereafter and died later that night at Avera McKennan Hospital.

Police have not released the man’s blood-alcohol level but have made it clear that alcohol was a factor in the crash. Whether or not the man will be charged with vehicular homicide is still under investigation, according to Deputy State’s Attorney Randy Sample.

“Normally, for vehicular homicide, you need two things: You need to be intoxicated, and you need to be involved in a negligent act,” Sample said.

Neither of the two involved in the crash were wearing helmets. The man remains hospitalized at Avera McKennan Hospital with serious injuries.
