Two airlifted after early Monday crash on I-90 near Kimball

KIMBALL—Four individuals were injured early Monday morning following a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 near Kimball.

The crash occurred at 12:10 a.m. 3 miles west of Kimball at mile marker 281.

A 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass driven by 38-year-old Quentin Johnson was heading east when it experienced mechanical problems. Johnson turned on his hazards and reduced speed when a 2015 Toyota Rav4, driven by Eric Krumm, 39, of Worthing, collided with the rear of the first vehicle from behind.

The Rav4 rolled onto its top and came to a rest on the roadway, blocking traffic, while the Cutlass left the roadway to the south and came to rest in the ditch.

Johnson and a 31-year-old female in the Cutlass suffered serious, non-life threatening injuries but were transported by air. Johnson was not wearing a seat belt, while the 31-year-old female was wearing a restraint. Two female children—ages 3 years old and 19 months—were transported by ambulance to the Chamberlain hospital, as well.

None of the occupants of the Rav4, which included females ages 23 and 59, were injured. They were all wearing seat belts. Charges are pending against Krumm, and the South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.
