U.S. Rep. William Janklow was driving 70 to 75 miles per hour when he ran a stop sign Saturday and collided with a motorcycle, killing the cyclist, according to a report released Wednesday by the South Dakota State Patrol. The speed limit on the road is 55 mph. Janklow's speed is significant to prosecutors because it will help them determine whether to charge him with a misdemeanor or felony.

Randolph E. Scott, a 55-year-old farmer from Hardwick, Minn., collided with Janklow's car and died at the scene.

"He's dealing with emotions of guilt and feeling terrible for the family involved," (Russ Janklow) said. "I don't think my dad is spending five seconds on how this will affect his political career."

Maybe to distract him from those pesky feelings of guilt, Janklow could deal with having his feet pulled off.
