No Charges In Hit And Run Death

Yankton County States Attorney Rob Klimisch says no charges will be filed in a hit-and-run incident in May that killed a Yankton man.

The body of 23-year-old Joseph Jackson was found on old Highway 50 about three miles north east of Yankton. Authorities later used DNA evidence to link a car to the death.

Klimisch said that an investigation concluded that Jackson was lying in the middle of the road when he was struck, and the vehicle that hit him was not speeding.

Authorities are not releasing the name of the driver. The car was found and seized by authorities in Mission Hill.
