Accident injures two

ELKTON – Two drivers were injured in a two-vehicle accident northwest of Elkton Saturday, according to the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.

The accident was reported at 10 a.m. Saturday and occurred at the intersection of 213th Street and 483rd Avenue, Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said.

Timothy Bauer, 54, of Elkton, was traveling east on 213th Street approaching 483rd Avenue in his 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 that was pulling a stock trailer. Bauer saw a 2015 Ford F350 driven by Taylor Kruger, 22, of Elkton, traveling north on 483rd Avenue.

“(Bauer) saw (the Ford) was not stopping and he attempted to stop before entering the intersection, but due to the wet gravel, he was unable to stop,” Sebring said.

Bauer’s Ram collided with Kruger’s Ford, he said.

“Upon collision, (the Ford) rolled into the ditch on the northeast side of the intersection. Both drivers were transported by the Elkton Ambulance with unknown injuries,” Sebring said.

Bauer’s Ram sustained $2,500 worth of damage; Kruger’s Ford was deemed a total loss.

Bauer was cited for failure to yield right of way at an intersection, Sebring said.

Also responding to the scene was the Elkton Fire Department.

The accident is under investigation with the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
