A two-vehicle crash left a young boy hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries Thursday in Mitchell, police said.

A boy-whose name was not available and is about 8 years old, authorities said-was taken to Avera Queen of Peace hospital Thursday with non-serious injuries after a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Sanborn Boulevard and Havens Avenue.

At about 4 p.m., a 2003 Dodge Intrepid, driven by Norma Schrank, 61, of Mitchell, was moving eastbound on Havens Avenue and struck a 1999 Chrysler passenger vehicle, driven by Heather Toman, 27, of Mitchell. Toman's vehicle was traveling northbound on Sanborn Boulevard, police believe.

The boy was the only person injured in the crash and was still at the hospital as of about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, but police expected him to recover and be released. The occupants of both vehicles were wearing seat belts.

Police believe Schrank failed to stop at a red light, but the crash is still under investigation. No citations have been issued.

Toman's vehicle sustained about $3,000 worth of damage to the front, driver-side tire and door area, police said. Schrank's Intrepid sustained about $2,000 in damage to the vehicle's front end.

Mitchell police and medics responded to the crash. No other information was immediately available.
