No injuries were reported following an accident Tuesday afternoon in Montgomery County, about six-miles south of Red Oak. Sheriff’s officials say they received word of the car-versus-truck crash at the intersection of Highway 48 and 250th Street, at around 12:10-p.m.  An investigation revealed a 2005 Chevy Cavalier owned by Leo Manuel Martinez, Jr., of Emerson, and driven by 20-year old Effie Elizabeth Armstrong, of Emerson, was traveling north on Highway 48.

A 1992 International 4000 series truck owned and driven by 69-year old Neal Frederick Curry, of Villisca, was turning left onto the highway from 250th Street, and as he did so, the truck hit the driver’s side center of the Martinez vehicle, causing the car to go out of control and spin into the west ditch. The vehicle sustained $4,000 damage.

Curry was cited for Failure to Yield upon entering a through highway.
