UPDATE:  The driver eventually turned himself over to authorities on Thursday afternoon.  24 year-old Jared Klaassen of Sioux Falls has been charged with hit and run along with reckless driving.

Police believe alcohol was involved, but only through admission of the culprit.  There was no way to test for blood alcohol content because of the time lapse between the incident and when Klaassen went to the police. 


Sioux Falls police are looking for a driver who crashed into a house early Thursday and then drove off.

Officers were called just before 12:30am to the 4200 block of South Palisade Lane, where a vehicle going west on 49th Street went out of control, drove into a yard and crashed into the front door of a house.

The driver took off east on 49th.

The vehicle is described as a dark green late 90's minivan, possibly a Dodge, Chrysler or Plymouth with heavy front-end damage.

No one was injured, but damage to the house was estimated at $10,000.
