YANKTON, SD -
A crash involving a semitrailer and a large industrial forklift in the Yankton area sent a man to the hospital and caused the shutdown of Highway 50 for about three hours.
Yankton County Sheriff Dave Hunhoff says the semi apparently rear-ended the forklift shortly after 1 p.m. Monday.
The 49-year-old Yankton man who was driving the forklift was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital with undisclosed injuries.
Officials had to tow both vehicles from the scene and repair damage to the surface of the highway, necessitating the temporary closure of the road.
