Police seek warrant in fatal hit-and-run crash in Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Rapid City police have targeted a suspect in last year’s hit-and-run crash that killed a one-year-old girl.

Authorities say the 37-year-old man was speeding before hitting two cars at a Rapid City intersection Oct. 5, 2019. Mackayla Dillion, riding in one of the cars that was struck, died. Two adults in her vehicle suffered serious injuries.

Police say they identified a suspect using surveillance video, forensic evidence analysis and witness interviews. Investigators are seeking a warrant to arrest the suspect on possible manslaughter and hit-and-run charges.
