A Mitchell couple continues to recover following a motorcycle crash on Sunday near Sioux Falls. 63 year old Steve Vlieger was driving his motorcycle just before 6 pm on Interstate 90. Three vehicles were involved in the crash. The motorcycle crashed into the back of a pickup driven by 18 year old Taylor Hildebrandt of Gann Valley when Hildebrandt slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting a car driven by 20 year old Lerista Dooley of Sioux Falls. Dooley was slowing down to make a U-turn in the median. Steve Vlieger suffered serious injuries including a broken wrist. The Mitchell Daily Republic reports that he also had to have a kidney removed. His wife, 55 year old Verla Vlieger, was a passenger on the motorcycle. She also broke her wrist and suffered a broken leg. They both remain hospitalized in Sioux Falls.
