The Clarinda Police Department says only minor injuries were reported following an accident late Saturday morning near the intersection of Lincoln and 16th Streets. Officials say a 2004 Chevy Impala driven by 60-year old Carol Jean Shipley, of Clarinda, was traveling east on Lincoln approaching 16th Street at around 11:35-a.m., when she failed to stop at the posted stop sign. Shipley’s car hit a northbound 2000 Dodge driven by 19-year old Kaytlynne Jo Gregory, of Clarinda. The collision caused the Gregory vehicle to spin around.  Shipley’s car continued northeast at the intersection and came into contact again with the Gregory vehicle before it jumped a curb and came to rest in a yard. Gregory was transported to the Clarinda Hospital by Clarinda EMS. A passenger in her car, and Shipley, both refused medical treatment. Damage from the crash amounted to $8,000. Officials say Shipley was cited for Failure to Obey a Stop Sign.

Clarinda Police report also an  arrest Saturday night following a domestic disturbance. Officers were called to the Meadow Run Apartments at around 11:15 p.m. Following an investigation, they arrested 29-year old Edward Dawayne Mays, of Clarinda, for violation of a domestic violence protection order that was issued pursuant to a domestic altercation earlier in the month. Mays was being held in the Page County Jail without bond, pending an appearance before a Page County Magistrate.
