An eastbound Ford pickup truck driven by 86-year-old Jacob Keiter of Hartington failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection. A southbound Ford pickup truck driven by 45-year-old Shane Pedersen of Pierce, Neb., collided with Keiter's truck.
Keiter, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was transported to Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton, South Dakota, by Crofton EMS. He was later transferred to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls. He died of his injuries Tuesday.
An investigation discovered $32,703 in fraudulent charges after a co-worker discovered evidence of the scheme and reported it to police. A man then split the money with Sandra Lalumendre, who was his manager.
Detectives have determined that at roughly 7:30 p.m. Friday, a vehicle pulled up outside the home in the 2300 block of 41st Street, several subjects exited the vehicle and confronted a 14-year-old male outside the house.
The man suffered head and other injuries in the 2018 collision between a car and a construction vehicle that killed two other people. He has severe brain trauma impairing his mobility, speech and memory.
