The Mills County Sheriff’s Office reports one person was transported to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash last Wednesday evening, southwest of Mineola. Officials say a 2002 Dodge passenger van driven by Melinda Lehman, of Glenwood, was traveling west on Barrus Road at around 5:20-p.m., when a 1992 Mack truck, driven by Pierre Hodges, of Omaha, pulled out of  a farm drive near 230th Street. Hodges failed to yield before entering the road, and hit the van on the right rear side, causing the van to roll into the ditch.

Lehman was transported by Glenwood Rescue to Jenny Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, for treatment of her injuries.
