Sheriff’s officials say no injuries were reported following an accident Thursday morning, in Hamlin. Vehicles driven by 41-year old Terry Gail Kromrie, of Guthrie Center, and 72-year old Duane Raymond Anderson, of Lewis, collided at the intersection of Highways 71 and 44, at around 11-a.m.

Officials say Kromie, who was traveling east on Highway 44, was cited for Failure to Yield from a Stop Sign, after he stopped, but then proceeded to turn north onto U-S 71.  Kromrie didn’t see Anderson’s northbound 2004 Dodge Ram approaching.  When he pulled onto the highway, his 2004 Ford F-350 was hit from behind by the Anderson vehicle. Officials say Anderson tried, but was unable to avoid the collision, which caused a total of $1500 damage.
