A collision between two vehicles Saturday morning in Council Bluffs resulted in $7,500 damage to the vehicles and about $5,000 damage to a nearby home. A police report cited by the Omaha World-Herald, says the accident occurred about 9:25 a.m. at the intersection of North 26th Street and Avenue B.

Officials say 28-year old Bradley A. Triplett, of Council Bluffs, proceeded into the intersection after stopping at the stop sign on 26th Street, when his Jeep Cherokee was struck by a Chevy Cavalier, driven by Jolena M. Shamblen, also of Council Bluffs. Shamblen was traveling east on Avenue B when the accident occurred. The collision caused Shamblen’s Chevy to leave the roadway and crash into a house at 201 N. 26th St. There were no injuries reported.
