Mitchell paramedics get ready to transport motorcyclist Jay Prickett, 50, of Mitchell, to Avera Queen of Peace hospital after a 10:55 a.m. collision Monday at the corner of Third Avenue and Gamble Street. A Ford Taurus driven by Leora Emme, 75, of Winner, stopped at the intersection, but Emme failed to see Prickett and pulled in front of him, authorities said. Emme was ticketed for failing to yield. Mitchell Police Sgt. Scott Walton, who was in charge at the accident scene, said Prickett was not wearing a helmet. Walton said he did not know the extent of Prickett's injuries.
