MITCHELL — Three people were injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash on Mitchell’s east side.
Shortly before 10 a.m. Monday, emergency personnel in Mitchell were dispatched to the intersection of First Avenue and Foster Street for a report of a two-vehicle crash.
According to the Mitchell Police Division, a Jeep Grand Cherokee was driving northbound on Foster Street and failed to stop at a stop sign and struck another vehicle, of which no description was provided, in the intersection.
The driver of the Jeep, 22-year-old Kensington Decoteau, of Sioux Falls, allegedly told police she had looked both ways and did not see any vehicles approaching the intersection. She experienced chest pains and was transported to a hospital. Her seat belt use is unclear at this time.
The two occupants of the second vehicle, both of which were in their 70s, suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention. They both were wearing a seat belt.
Decoteau was charged with failure to stop as a result of the crash.
