No injuries were reported after a car and pickup truck collided Friday afternoon, in Atlantic. The Police Department says a car driven by Paula Goettsche, of Atlantic, rear-ended a pickup driven by Jerry McCrory, of Atlantic, at the intersection of 7th Street and Hospital Drive.

Officials say McCrory was stopped at the intersection headed eastbound. Goettsches’ vehicle was behind him, and proceeded to move forward while McCrory was still stopped. Her car hit a lowered tailgate on the pickup, causing about $2,300 damage altogether. Goettsche was cited by police for Failure to Maintain Control. The accident happened at around 12:45-p.m.
