Authorities in Harlan say two people were injured following an accident on Sunday evening. The Harlan PD says 81-year old Dorothy Holloway, of Harlan, was traveling eastbound on Lincoln Avenue and failed to stop at the junction with 19th Street. Holloway’s 2010 Chevy pickup went through the intersection and hit a 2006 Dodge pickup driven by 81-year old Bernard Leinen, of Harlan, on the right side. The accident happened at around 5:10-p.m.

After the impact, Holloway’s pickup rolled over on its side and came to rest back on its wheels on the north east corner of the four way intersection. Leinen’s truck also came to rest in the northeast corner of the intersection. Both drivers were transported by private vehicle to Myrtue Medical Center in Harlan. An update on their condition is not available.

Damage from the crash amounted to $22,00 altogether.  Officials say Holloway was cited for failure to obey a stop sign.
