WHD staff A truck making a run between Rapid City and Sundance Friday night was apparently the victim of sniper fire. The damage was discovered when the driver pulled the rig into the pert of entry at Sundance at 8:15 p.m. He told officers he had realized he was losing water from the radiator about 20 miles out of town. He said he had been stopped in Montana earlier in the week and warned to stop driving by other independent truckers. The driver said he thought the truck could have gone about 100 miles before all the water leaked out of the radiator. A Sundance police officer said that a hole in the lower part of the truck radiator was angled from above, "like from an overpass." The officer said the owner of the truck, Bob Iron, Sheridan, was contacted Saturday and said the truck could be repaired. He said a new radiator would cost about $1,500.
