PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg says he’s confident he didn’t commit a crime when he struck and killed a man as he drove along a dark highway in September.

It’s the first time Ravnsborg has talked publicly about the crash that killed 55-year-old Joseph Boever along Highway 14 near Highmore, although he previously issued a statement.

An investigation into the fatality is ongoing. Investigators are working with the Hyde County State’s Attorney’s Office to determine whether charges are warranted.
