The Page County Sheriff’s Office says no injuries were reported following two separate accidents Friday. During the first accident, which took place at around 9:25-a.m., when a vehicle passed a tractor pulling two loaded grain wagons kicked up dust and obstructed the vision of the driver of a vehicle behind the tractor and wagons. The vehicle following the grain wagons hit the rear of the second wagon, causing $150 to the wagon, and $5,000 damage to the vehicle, a 2007 Pontiac mini-van. The driver of the van was identified as 78-year old Nancy Nothwehr, of Omaha. The tractor was driven by 66-year old Keith Huseman, of Coin. No citations were issued following the mishap, which happened about two-miles south of Yorktown, near 230th Street and J Avenue.

The second accident happened just after 3-p.m. Friday, on 270th Street, about 3-miles west of Coin. Officials say a 1995 Toyota drivn by 50-year old Renee Pabolo, of Riverton, was traveling west on 270th Street, when she met a grain truck driven by 27-year old Nicholas Ohnmacht, of College Springs. As the vehicles were passing in the opposite directions, the wind caught a tarp on the truck. The tarp flew off and hit the car, causing $2, 500 damage. No citations were issued.
