SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA, May 29, 2012, ( – A PR hand for Planned Parenthood, who is running as a Democratic candidate for state legislature, has been cited for DUI and Careless Driving after police say she collided with a seven-year-old girl who was riding her bike through a crosswalk.

Carmen Toft, 32, is the South Dakota Public Affairs Manager at Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota (PPMNNDSD). She is also running for the Democratic nomination in the state House of Representatives in District 10.

The accident occurred last Tuesday at the corner of Eighth Street and North Chicago Avenue in Sioux Falls.


Sioux Falls Police spokesman Sam Clemens said Toft refused to take a breathalyzer test on the spot, telling police the girl “came out of nowhere.” However, officers administered a blood test, as required by state law.

The girl was transported for possible internal injuries, but her current condition is unknown.

Toft has actively campaigned against state pro-life measures since at least 2006, according to local media. On her Twitter feed, she also endorsed “marriage equality.”
