Two USD Students Struck in Hit and Run Over D-Days

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A University of South Dakota student is recovering tonight after she says she and her friend were the victims of a D-Days hit and run.

Jaycie Pohlman says it happened just before 2 a.m. Saturday. The USD senior says she and her friend were walking home when they were hit by a car, which drove away.

Police found the two lying in the road at the intersection of Prentis Avenue and Main Street in Vermillion. All Jaycie remembers is waking up in an ambulance. The two are expected to make full recoveries but Jaycie is still suffering from several injuries.

“I got pretty bad road rash around my head, I had rocks in my skin, I have two black eyes, a lot of face swelling my head got busted a little bit up here as well,” said Jaycie.

Jaycie’s family has placed an ad in the USD student paper asking anyone with information to contact the Vermillion Police Department.
