Three people were injured Saturday in a head-on collision east of Mitchell on Highway 38.

A 2013 Ford F-150, driven by 18-year-old Logan Sparks, of Mitchell, was traveling east on Highway 38 when it began to turn toward East First Avenue, according to the Davison County Sheriff's Office. That's when it met a 2013 Ford Taurus that was traveling west on Highway 38. The crash occurred at about 11:35 a.m.

Officials with the sheriff's office said the Taurus was traveling about 65 mph and the pickup was moving at 35 mph at the time of the collision. Two people inside the Taurus were transported to a Mitchell hospital for their injuries. The driver sustained significant injuries while the passenger suffered minor injuries. Sparks also suffered minor injuries, and everyone involved was wearing their seat belt.

Sparks was cited with failure to yield. Both vehicles were totaled.
