Sheriff’s officials say 49-year old Larry Brown, of Griswold, was checked by Red Oak Rescue for minor injuries at the scene of the crash, at Highway 48 and 130th Street, but refused medical transport to the hospital.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, a 1999 Ford Mustang, owned and operated by 16-year old Abigail Cook, of rural Emerson, was making a left turn from 130th Street onto Highway 48, when she pulled into the path of a 1987 Yamaha motorcycle, owned and operated by Larry Brown. Brown laid his cycle down onto its side just before it hit the Mustang. The accident happened at around 2:20-p.m., Sunday.

The collision caused at total of $4,500 damage. Cook was cited for Failure to Yield upon entering a through highway, and failure to have insurance. Brown was also cited for failure to have insurance.

On a separate note, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says 46-year old Randall J. Conry, of rural Elliott, was arrested Sunday on a 60-day mittimus, or, order by a court or magistrate, to appear and serve a jail sentence.
