DEADWOOD | Charges are pending against both drivers after a car-ATV crash injured three people Monday morning in Deadwood.
Connor Kuhl, 18, of Lead was driving a 2009 Kawasaki ATV around 8:50 a.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 14A in Deadwood, said South Dakota Department of Public Safety spokesman Tony Mangan.
Mangan said Kuhl and passenger Hayden Hill, 18, of Deadwood were either traveling across the intersection or attempting to make a left turn at the intersection when a Nissan Altima struck the ATV.
Kuhl and Hill were thrown from the ATV. Kuhl was transported to the Deadwood hospital for minor injuries. Hill was taken to Rapid City Regional Hospital for serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Neither man wore a seat belt or helmet, Mangan said.
Altima driver James Griffith, 59, of Deadwood, suffered minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital. He was wearing a seat belt.
Charges are pending against Kuhl and Griffith, Mangan said.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. The Deadwood Police Department assisted at the accident scene.
