The Iowa State Patrol reports an Anita man was injured, but was not transported to the hospital, following an accident Tuesday afternoon east of Anita. Officials say a 2000 Ford Excursion driven by 45-year old Richard Hansen II, of Anita, was traveling north on 770th Street when the vehicle went out of control, slid across the road about one-quarter of a mile east of Eastland Road, and came to rest in the west ditch, facing west. The Patrol says Hansen was not wearing a seatbelt. The accident happened at around 4:50-p.m.
