One woman was injured in a two-vehicle, rear-end crash Thursday morning on Burr Street in Mitchell.

The man driving the silver 2001 Dodge Durango in which the woman was a passenger was traveling north on Burr Street and had set his blinker to turn left, according to the Mitchell Police Department.

The Durango was reportedly completely stopped to let oncoming traffic pass when it was rear-ended by a white 2017 Chevy Malibu, driven by 18-year-old Isabel Schley of Mitchell, at about 11:49 a.m.

The female passenger of the Durango was transported to the Queen of Peace Hospital as a precaution.

Schley was cited for allegedly following traffic too closely. No other charges are pending.
