January 16, 2018
Shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday, the Richland Couny Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a person lying on a roadway with extreme hypothermia.
Fifty-one-year-old Daniel Paul Haverland of rural Walcott was found on County Road 3, about 6 miles west of Colfax. The Colfax Fire Department and Kindred Ambulance Service were also on the scene. Haverland was transported by Sanford AirMed to Sanford Hospital.
Upon further investigation Haverland’s vehicle was found stuck in the ditch near the intersection of Highway 18 and Richland County Road 4. It appears that he walked approximately 6 miles from that location to where he was found on the road by family members.
