Last Thursday afternoon, Cass County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a two-vehicle accident on Highway 71 at Highway 83. Officials say a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire driven by 17-year old Kelly Rae Pullen, of Coin, was traveling southbound on Highway 71 and had stopped at the stop sign at Highway 83. A 2001 Pontiac Grand Am owned and driven by Michael Updike came to a stop behind Pullen’s vehicle. Updike’s vehicle then rolled forward into the back of Pullen’s vehicle causing the bumpers to strike against one another. No citations were issued. Damage to Pullen’s vehicle is estimated at $1,500; no damage was reported to Updike’s vehicle.
