Two injured in Highway 81 crash

Two people are injured in a Friday afternoon collision west of Bruce.

Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring says it happened at Highway 81 and 203rd Street at about 3:20 p.m.

A northbound car was being driven by 59-year-old Sandra Meylor of Estelline. Sebring says she did not see the turn signal of a car in front of her that was turning east onto 203rd. That car was being driven by 63-year-old Cynthia Converse of Arlington.

The two collided and Meylor’s car rolled and came to rest upright in the intersection. She was taken by Arlington ambulance to the Brookings Hospital.

Converse was transported to the hospital by a private party with unknown injuries.

Meylor was issued a citation for careless driving, and following too closely. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

The Arlington Fire Department, Arlington Ambulance, South Dakota Highway Patrol and Kingsbury County Sheriff’s Office also responded.
