In an update to an earlier story, the Atlantic Police Department says a Council Bluffs woman was transported to the Cass County Memorial Hospital Tuesday night, following an accident at the intersection of 7th and Hazel Streets. Officials say vehicles driven by Megan Hall, of Council Bluffs, and Leah Jenkins, of Atlantic, were both westbound on 7th Street just before midnight, when Jenkins saw a dark object out of the corner of her eye and hit the brakes.

When Hall couldn’t stop in time, her vehicle struck the back of Jenkins’ vehicle, causing a total of about $2,700 damage. Hall complained of pain and was taken to the hospital by Medivac Ambulance, to be checked out.

Hall was cited by police for following too close, and failure to provide proof of insurance.
