No injuries were reported following an accident Thursday afternoon in a Cass County Memorial Hospital parking lot. Atlantic Police say a vehicle driven by Arlen Rainey, of Atlantic, was turning west onto East 10th Street from Hospital Drive, as a vehicle driven by Michael Tomkins, of Clearmont, MO, was backing into the lot to unload cargo.

Tomkins didn’t see Rainey’s vehicle. The resulting collision caused $2,500 damage to Rainey’s vehicle, but there was no discernable damage to the truck driven by Tomkins. No citations were issued following the mishap, which happened at around 1:10-p.m. Thursday.
