Joe Boever Death, Dead: Man Killed In A Car Accident Involving Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg



Joe Boever Has passed away. Joe Boever was reported to have died tragically on Sunday.

Highmore, S.D., resident, Joe Boever has been identified as the person killed in a collision with a vehicle driven by South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg the night of Saturday, Sept. 12.

According to a press release from the State Department of Public Safety, South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, 44, was driving a 2011 Ford Taurus when he struck Boever at about 10:30 p.m. The attorney general, who wasn’t injured in the collision, told the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office he had hit a deer.

Joe Boever’s body wasn’t discovered until Sunday morning, Sept. 13, DPS said.

The investigation is ongoing and being led by the Highway Patrol.

The attorney general’s office said investigators from North Dakota are also in South Dakota and assisting in the crash investigation due to the conflict created by Ravnsborg’s role overseeing the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.

Nick Nemec, Boever’s cousin and a former Democratic state legislator, said he went with his brother Victor to identify the body at 8 p.m. Sunday, nearly 20 hours after the collision.

Narrating what happened, Nick Nemec said Boever had damaged the front of his white Ford pickup when he struck a hay bale along Highway 14 earlier on Saturday. Boever was probably walking back to the pickup from his home in Highmore when he was struck by Ravnsborg on Saturday night, Nemec said.

“All I can think of was Joe decided to walk back out to his pickup and straighten the bumper himself,” he said.
