A 24-year-old Mitchell man sustained serious, non-life threatening injuries Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash in Mitchell.

Levi Sapp was traveling southbound on Ohlman Street when his 2010 Toyota Tundra crashed into a 2007 freightliner semi that was pulling a car-hauler trailer, according to Mitchell Police Officer Patrick Marler. The semi and trailer, which had one car on it, was traveling north on Ohlman Street from the West Cubby’s gas station. It was driven by Kevin Dybedahl, of Dell Rapids.

The Toyota Tundra crashed into the rear axle of the trailer on the driver’s side. There was some damage to the trailer, while the Tundra had heavy front-end damage and was likely totalled, Marler said.

Sapp was transported to Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell by ambulance. Dybedahl was uninjured. It is unclear if seat belts were used in either vehicle, as the crash is still under investigation and no citations have been written.
