Police: Driver fatally stabs himself after crashing in SD

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police say a Montana man killed himself after he crashed his pickup truck in southeast South Dakota.

Sioux Falls Police spokesman Sam Clemens says several people saw the crash around noon Wednesday and tried to help the driver, who had just taken an Interstate 29 exit in Sioux Falls and veered off the roadway.

Clemens says the 57-year-old man from Billings, Montana, stabbed himself in the chest after the crash. He died at the scene.

Clemens says the man’s pickup truck struck a light pole and may have rolled before it came to a stop.
