Posted on July 12, 2022 at 8:08 AM by Michelle Delaney

Occurred: 7/11/2022 8:53AM Location: 205th St/468th Ave Suspect: Tyler Addy, 37 of Sioux Falls Passenger: Amanda Silas, 31 of Sioux Falls

On the above date and time, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office and the South Dakota Highway Patrol responded to a single vehicle, which was obviously involved in a collision resulting in injury to the occupants. All occupants of the vehicle fled the scene after the collision and were not present when officers arrived. It was discovered, the vehicle was stolen from Sioux Falls. A search was conducted with the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office UAV and K9. In addition, the South Dakota Highway Patrol UAV was utilized. After extensive search, the driver, Tyler Addy, 37 of Sioux Falls, was found hiding in a drainage ditch and taken into custody. A passenger, Amanda Silas, 31 of Sioux Falls, was found hiding in a shelter belt and was taken into custody. Two other suspects have been developed. Tyler is an absconder from probation and is charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Hit and Run resulting in Injury, Hit and Run resulting in Property Damage, Obstruction and False Impersonation and is being held at the Brookings County Detention Center. Amanda is being charged with Obstruction. Both Tyler and Amanda were taken to the Brookings Hospital to be treated for injuries sustained from accident as well as precaution for heat exhaustion. The other two suspects are believed to have fled the area. Officers were greatly assisted by local residents who offered tips, equipment and observations to officers as they were searching. Without their assistance, this case would have likely had a different outcome.
