CANTON, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a hit-and-run driver struck a teenage girl along the interstate in Lincoln County, leaving her with life-threatening injuries.

A passer-by saw the injured girl about 3 a.m. Monday and called authorities. Sheriff Steve Swenson says he doesn’t know when the teen was hit.
