Man charged in deadly hit and run crash makes court appearance

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The man accused of hit and run resulting in the death of a child made a court appearance Thursday.

George Matousek, 37, was arrested late last year in Washington state and was extradited back to South Dakota.

He is accused of driving a car that struck another vehicle in October 2018. The crash killed one-year old Mackayla Dillon. Matousek ran from the scene of the crash, and was the subject of a manhunt until his capture in Washington state.

He’s charged with second degree manslaughter, hit and run with injury and driving under suspension.

Matousek, who could face up to twelve years in prison if convicted, remains jailed without bond.
