One injured in rear-end crash near west Mitchell
A 48-year-old White Lake woman sustained minor injuries Thursday morning in a two vehicle crash about 2 miles west of Mitchell.
While the driver of a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup was broken down on the side of the road on 252nd Street with the hazard lights on, Michelle Fredericksen, of White Lake, rear-ended the pickup, resulting in her ending up in the ditch.
According to Tony Mangan, spokesman for the state Highway Patrol, Fredericksen was driving a 2012 Honda Accord, traveling westbound along 252nd Street when she rear-ended the two passengers in the broken down pickup. The 64-year-old male driver and the 59-year-old male passenger were not on scene at the time of the crash.
Fredericksen was reportedly wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and was transported to Avera Queen of Peace hospital in Mitchell by way of a private party. Charges are pending.
