O’Connel pulled onto Highway 14 and collided with an eastbound car driven by 34-year-old Roger Jennings of Echo, Minnesota. It happened at about 7:30 a.m.

There were five passengers in the Jennings vehicle and two of them, 32-year-old Skye Jennings and 11-year-old Terrek Jennings, were injured in the crash. Both were taken by ambulance to the Brookings Hospital with unknown injuries.

O’Connel was cited for a stop sign violation.
