A 12-year old boy from Treynor suffered what were described as “non life-threatening” injuries when the bicycle he was riding was struck by a car Sunday morning, in Treynor. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker told KJAN News the accident happened at around 10:30-a.m. at the intersection of Horn Avenue and north Eyberg. Danker says David Burhenne was crossing north Eyberg and didn’t see a northbound Chrysler Sebring driven by Dana Putnam, of rural McClelland.

Burhenne suffered a broken ankle and minor facial lacerations during the collision. Danker says Putnam stopped to render aid to the boy prior to his being transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, by Treynor Rescue. No citations were issued.
