Driver Injured in Semi-Truck Accident on Highway 50 in Yankton County, SD

Yankton County, SD -- March 8, 2023, a driver was injured due to an accident where a semi-truck and an SUV crashed along Highway 50.

Investigators said that the incident happened just before 6:00 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 50 and Highway 314. Their initial reports said that an unidentified driver was in an SUV traveling eastbound on Highway 50. It appears a semi-truck made a "stop sign violation," resulting in a collision with the SUV.

The SUV driver was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries. No one else was said to be injured. Police say they cited the truck driver. Beyond this, they haven't given any additional details.

It's always infuriating to read about crashes like this. There could be more to this story, but generally speaking any truck driver worth their salt can avoid a stop sign violation. We have kids playing "Red Light, Green Light" on the playground. Shouldn't a trained professional be able to yield for traffic at a stop sign without any issues? That's why it's always important to find out what led to a crash like this. It's rarely a simple mistake. It's more likely there were negligent actions that need to be addressed. It unfortunately wouldn't be surprising if the same proved true here, as well.
