Two Cars Hit SF Pedestrian; Second Car Flees

Hey, Jason Ravnsborg isn’t driving around Sioux Falls in a silver car, is he?

Sioux Falls police are looking to identify a driver involved in a pedestrian fatality.

Aaron Exendine was walking on the roadway of highway 42 and Cherry Lake Ave.

Around 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday October 25th he was hit by two cars.

The driver of the first car that hit Exendine was cooperative and remained at the scene.

…Video footage showed several cars driving through the scene.

A four-door late model silver sedan actually hitting Exendine a second time.

The driver continued driving East leaving the scene [Baylee Peterson, “Family and Authorities Searching for Suspect in Pedestrian Fatality,” KSFY, 2022.11.01].

Maybe Jason will be stalking the Noem campaign rallies in Sioux Falls today and police could check for person-shaped dents on his bumper. Ravnsborg does have a record of bumping into pedestrians and trying to avoid consequences.

    Why does Jason Ravnsborg still have a driver’s license?

    I’ve noticed there are a lot more hit and runs going on in Sioux Falls lately. Including non-fatal ones: My husband came out of a store and someone had bashed in his back fender in the parking lot – and left, no note, no nothing. And I’ve heard of this elsewhere. It’s not “the best people” driving out there.

    I parked in a very busy hospital parking lot not long ago and came out to find someone had keyed my car on the passenger side. No, I didn’t grab a spot from someone waiting and I didn’t park too close to the lines. Someone was just being mean.

    Kurt Evans – Do you have anything to say about the Jason Ravnsborg incident?

    Ravnsborg is a pile, but making light of an innocent’s recent death to make the point is low brow. Do better.

    Kurt Evans – Do you have anything to say about the Jason Ravnsborg incident?

    Jason won the Republican nomination for attorney general in 2018 largely because he was a kind, honest man. He looked down at the speedometer as he was transitioning between speed zones, and Joe Boever entered the driving lane to commit suicide.

    Governor Noem’s DPS secretary and rabid Marty Jackley supporter Craig Price says Jason just happened to drive all four wheels across the rumble strip without noticing, ten feet outside the white line, at the precise location of a late-night pedestrian who, among several other very unusual actions, had taken nearly a month’s worth of the psychotropic drug lorazepam in less than 36 hours. As Marty Jackley is presumably capable of figuring out, that would have been a mind-bending freak coincidence if it had really happened.

    Noem and Jackley conspired to promote Price’s fictitious and preposterous “reconstruction” of the crash. In a flagrant abuse of power, Price also released information taken out of context from Jason’s personal text messages, unrelated to any investigation, to smear him in the media and prejudice public opinion against him. Someone somehow knew to add Scott Odenbach to an anonymous billboard attacking Jason’s supporters in the legislature before Odenbach’s involvement became public. Joe Desilets left Noem’s staff for an unknown reason.

    The minimum number of state representatives necessary voted to impeach Jason. Both articles of impeachment were false. Jackley’s hand puppet Mark Vargo used an avalanche of reckless, bombastic falsehoods during the senate trial to compensate for a lack of real evidence, mislead the senate, and drive Jason out of office.

    Noem appointed Vargo to replace Jason as attorney general. Jason continued to assert that Noem had illegally used the state plane to raise her national political profile at public expense. A panel of widely respected former judges on the Government Accountability Board referred the matter to Vargo for criminal investigation. Vargo’s hand-picked special prosecutor says no charges are warranted.

    No prominent South Dakota journalist has had the integrity to publicly ask why the amputation of Joe’s leg didn’t leave any of its blood on the top of the car, or why the collision on the extreme right side of the car, which was allegedly traveling over 60 miles per hour roughly a foot from the edge of the pavement, didn’t angle it into the ditch. No prominent South Dakota journalist has publicly asked whether Vargo is investigating the anonymous billboard or any other misuse of executive power to interfere with the legislature’s impeachment process.

    Man, it must be exhausting to have a monopoly on the truth, Kurt.

    Speaking of grooming, remember when Jason Ravnsborg was campaigning at the South Dakota Teen Republicans camp and Pat Powers enabled it?
