Sheriff’s officials in Montgomery County report two people were injured when the pickups they were driving collided Sunday evening, just north of Stanton. 39-year old Robin Michelle Sanders, of Corning, was taken to the Montgomery County Memorial Hospital by Stanton Rescue, while 42-year old Anthony James Clark, of Red Oak, was transported by private vehicle.

The Sheriff’s Department says Sanders was traveling east on Highway 34, approaching the intersection with O Avenue (County Road M-63), at about the same time Clark was traveling south on O Avenue. Clark told authorities he stopped at the intersection, looked both ways and thought it was clear. As he proceeded south, his 1999 Chevy 1500 pickup was hit in the middle of the intersection, by the 2005 Chevy 1500, driven by Sanders. The accident happened at around 5:45-p.m., Sunday.

The truck driven by Sanders, and registered to Greg Fort, of Corning, sustained $8,000 damage while Clark’s truck was considered a total loss. Officials say Clark was cited for Failing to Yield, upon entering a through highway.
