VOLGA – A teenager was cited for not stopping at a stop sign, which resulted in an accident that sent three people to the hospital, according to the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
The accident was reported at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and occurred at 214th Street and 465th Avenue south of Volga, Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said.
Tanner Wulf, 17, of Volga, was traveling southbound on 465th Avenue in his 2003 Chevy Cavalier and failed to stop for the stop sign at that location, Sebring said.
“His vehicle then struck the 2005 Ford F150 driven by Brandon Mcrae that was traveling eastbound on 214th Street. There was also a passenger, Jonathon Finnegan, riding in the vehicle with Brandon,” Sebring said.
Mcrae, 22, is from Brookings and Finnegan, 42, is from Volga. All three were transported to the Brookings Hospital with unknown injuries. Both vehicles were deemed total losses.
Wulf was issued a citation for a stop sign violation.
The accident is under investigation with the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
