CASTLEWOOD, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol closed Interstate 29 near Castlewood for nearly three hours after a patrol vehicle’s rear window mysteriously shattered.

Authorities are investigating what caused the window to shatter after the trooper completed a traffic stop on I-29 about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. The trooper heard a loud pop and the rear window shattered.

A portion of the interstate was closed for two to three hours, and traffic was re-routed around the scene.

Several local and state law enforcement agencies responded to the incident, and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation continues to investigate.
