A 19-year-old woman sustained minor injuries after she crashed her vehicle into two pickup trucks at approximately 9:15 a.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of American Garage Door in Mitchell.

Authorities say Oliveyah Habben, of Lake Andes, was driving northbound on the 100 block of Sanborn Boulevard in her 2010 Chevy HHR vehicle and veered off the road into the American Garage Door parking lot, where she hit two parked pickup trucks. The impact of the crash damaged the concrete wall that sits along the north side of the AGD parking lot.

Sgt. Ryan Erickson of the Mitchell Police Division said a 2006 Chevy Silverado and 1997 Ford F-150 were damaged by Habben.

Erickson said the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
