ETHAN -- Charges are pending against two people who sustained minor injuries in a Tuesday morning crash near Ethan.

According to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, at 9:50 a.m., 18-year-old Cynthia Rosario, of Ethan, was westbound on S.D. Highway 42 in a 2008 Saturn Veu, about 1 mile west of Ethan.

Rosario reportedly failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Highway 42 and S.D. Highway 37. Her vehicle collided with a southbound 2005 Dodge Magnum driven by 36-year-old Jason Weber, of Parkston.

Rosario was wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred, and Weber was not. Both sustained minor injuries and were transported to the hospital in Mitchell. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene, and charges are pending against both drivers.
