Victim’s glasses found in car of South Dakota Attorney General who claimed he hit a deer Jason Ravnsborg charged with three misdemeanour counts after accident leading to death of 55-year-old pedestrian

Calls for the resignation of South Dakota’s Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg are mounting after investigators found the glasses of a crash victim in Mr Ravnsborg’s vehicle. He claims he thought he drove into a deer and didn’t know it was a pedestrian until the next morning.

Mr Ravnsborg was charged with three misdemeanour counts last week after the accident leading to the death of 55-year-old Joseph Boever, CNN reported.

New evidence was released on Tuesday night, with investigators now saying that Mr Boever was hit with such force that his face came through the windshield of Mr Ravnsborg’s vehicle. He hit and killed Mr Boever on 12 September of last year.

“They’re Joe’s glasses, so that means his face came through your windshield,” one investigator tells Mr Ravnsborg during a filmed interview. The footage was released on Tuesday.

“I did not see those glasses until you showed them to me,” Mr Ravnsborg responded.

“The only way for them to get there is through the windshield,” the law enforcement official says. “His face was in your windshield, Jason. Think about that.”

“I did not see him. I did not see anything,” Mr Ravnsborg said. “I did not know it was a human until the next day.”
