Two separate accidents Sunday, in Mills County, resulted in both drivers being sent to the hospital. The Mills County Sheriff’s Office says one accident happened just after 7-a.m., when a 2003 Subaru driven by Robin Jo Patrick, of Glenwood, left 221st Street and hit an embankment before rolling over and coming to rest on the driver’s side. The accident happened about seven miles north of Glenwood. Patrick was extricated from the vehicle through a passenger side front window and transported to Mercy Hospital, by Glenwood Rescue.

The second accident happened at around 5-p.m. Sunday, about four-miles southwest of Pacific Junction. Officials say Debra Ann Wingerd, of Glenwood, was traveling east on Nims Road in a 2008 Ford,when she swerved to miss a deer. The vehicle rolled into the south ditch and came to rest on its top. Wingerd was transported to Jennie Edmundson Hospital by Pacific Junction Rescue.
