MITCHELL — Two Mitchell residents were injured Wednesday in a two-vehicle crash near the city's eastern edge.
At approximately noon Wednesday, authorities in Davison and Hanson counties responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of Shanard Road and 413th Avenue.
According to Hanson County Sheriff Brandon Wingert, a blue Mini Cooper was traveling eastbound on Shanard Road when the driver, Nancy Comp, of Mitchell, failed to stop at the intersection of 413th Avenue. The Mini Cooper struck a Dodge Ram pickup truck that was traveling on 413th Avenue.
The collision caused the truck, driven by Mark Ruml, of Mitchell, to go into a nearby ditch. Both vehicles involved in the crash were heavily damaged.
According to Wingert, Comp sustained minor injuries from the collision and was transported to Avera Queen of Peace hospital. Ruml sustained minor injuries, but did not require an ambulance to transport him.
