The Atlantic Police Department says no injuries were reported following an accident Thursday afternoon near Murphy Oil, in the Wal-Mart shopping plaza. Officials say the accident happened at around 4:15-p.m., when a vehicle driven by Gail Lange, of Atlantic, was attempting to enter the parking lot by making a quick left turn before turning back to the right. At the same time, a vehicle driven by Tye Olsen, of Colorado Springs, CO, was leaving the lot. Olsen slowed or stopped for Lange’s vehicle, but there wasn’t enough room for Lange’s car to turn. The vehicle hit Olsen’s vehicle on the right front side, causing a total of $1,500 damage. There were no citations issued.
