SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the discovery of a body of a 16-year-old boy from Minnehaha County found on Interstate 90 just east of the I-29 interchange.

The sheriff’s office says Jay Gary Lavender was found about 10:45 p.m. Thursday, and it appears the boy had been struck by a semitrailer that left the scene.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating the truck, which they believe to be a white semi with a large grill that was traveling west. Witnesses told deputies that the truck was seen parked on the side of the road about a quarter mile west of the scene.

The incident prompted a brief shutdown of the highway.
