March 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Authorities in Montgomery County are investigating a non-injury accident that took place Wednesday morning, just west of Red Oak. Officials say a semi driven by David Ficke, of Pleasant Dale, NE, was attempting to make a left-hand turn off of Highway 34 onto Boxelder Avenue, at the same time a car driven by Martha Morton, of Hopkins, MO, was attempting to pass the semi.

As the 2003 Peterbilt semi driven by Ficke turned onto Boxelder, it came into contact with Morton’s 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. Both vehicle came to rest in the intersection. The accident happened at around 10:30-a.m., Wednesday.
