HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) — Authorities are holding a South Dakota man suspected of driving drunk when he allegedly struck and killed a woman walking her dog in Hartford.

Officers were called around 9 p.m. Monday after the woman was struck. She is identified as 41-year-old Nichole Gail Anderson. Authorities say she died at the scene.

A 31-year-old Hartford man was arrested and booked into jail late Monday on charges including vehicular homicide. Authorities say the man called police about the crash and was arrested at the scene.

Authorities would not say how much alcohol the driver had in his system other than it was above the legal limit, the Argus Leader reported.
