One person sustained minor injuries Wednesday morning in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of West 10th Avenue and North Wisconsin Street.

The crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. when 17-year-old Abagayle Mica, of Mitchell, proceeded east in a Honda Fit on West 10th Avenue after stopping at a stop sign at the two-way intersection, according to the Mitchell Police Division.

The other driver, a 34-year-old man also from Mitchell who was southbound on North Wisconsin Street in a Ford Expedition, hit the driver's side door of Mica's car, causing the airbags to deploy. He was uninjured in the crash, and Mica's injuries were treated at the scene by medics. Both were wearing seat belts, and there were no passengers in either car.

The Honda was towed from the scene, and the Ford sustained virtually no damage in the crash. Mica was cited for failure to yield after stopping at a stop sign.
