Two wrecked vehicles sit near the intersection of First Avenue and Minnesota Street on Monday afternoon in Mitchell. According to Mitchell Police Sgt. Dave Beintema, 25-year-old Adam Schorzmann, of rural Mitchell, was driving southbound on Minnesota Street in a silver 2010 Chevy Cobalt when he became distracted and hit an unoccupied, blue 2008 Saturn Aura parked on the west side of the street, causing about $5,500 in damage between the two vehicles. The distraction was not caused by a cell phone, Beintema said. No one was injured in the crash, but Schorzmann was cited for careless driving. (Sean Ryan/The Daily Republic)
