A crash at a blind, uncontrolled intersection southeast of Elliott Saturday evening, caused $16,500 damage to the vehicles involved, but there were no injuries reported. Authorities say a pickup registered to Twin Pines Farms in Griswold, and driven by 39-year old Jeffrey Mundorf, of Red Oak, was traveling south on N Avenue just after 6-p.m. Saturday, at the same time a pickup driven by 43-year old Jeffrey Reynolds, of Elliott, was traveling east on 120th Street.

When Mundorf crested a hill he saw Reynolds’ pickup approaching from the west but was unable to avoid contact. Reynolds’ 1999 Ford F-150 hit the 2011 Chevy Silverado pickup Mundorf was driving near the right rear tire, causing the vehicle to spin 360-degrees before entering the east ditch, just south of the intersection. Reynolds’ pickup went into the ditch southeast of the intersection and hit a tree before coming to rest.

The investigating officer’s report said no citations were issued because the crash was at a blind intersection coming from the north at the posted speed limit.
