1 injured in Haines Avenue motor home rollover

RAPID CITY, S.D. – A mechanical malfunction led to a scary stop for one South Dakota driver.

Emergency departments responded to the scene of a two-vehicle accident under the Haines Avenue overpass on Saturday.

According to the Rapid City Police Department, a driver operating a blue and white motorhome was heading westbound on an Interstate 90 off-ramp when their brakes blew out.

The operator attempted to complete a right turn heading north on Haines, but the momentum of the turn caused the vehicle to roll onto its driver side.

The motorhome then slid into a gray SUV heading northbound on Haines, hitting the passenger side of the car and obstructing all northbound lanes.

RCPD blocked all traffic heading north on Haines while Olson Towing crews worked to put the motorhome on its wheels and remove both vehicles from the scene.

The driver of the motor home suffered only minor injuries. No one else was hurt in the accident.

The westbound off-ramp was closed, and eastbound off-ramp traffic was diverted south during the emergency response.
