Four people suffered what were described as minor injuries during a rollover accident early this (Tuesday) morning on Interstate 80, here in Cass County. According to the Cass County Communications Center dispatches, a vehicle rolled into the median just east of mile marker 60 (the Highway 71 exit). Atlantic and Anita Fire and Rescue, and Medivac ambulance were called to the scene. All four persons in the vehicle were said to be conscious and breathing following the crash, which was reported at 3:27-a.m. Their injuries included cuts from flying glass, and a possible broken ankle. A semi is believed to have been involved in the accident. No other details are available at this time. Cass County Sheriff’s deputies and the Iowa State Patrol were still on the scene investigating just before 4-a.m., but early indications are drugs or alcohol may have played a role in the crash. Dispatch reports indicated a gun was also found in the vehicle or on one of the subjects injured.
