Officials in Montgomery County say no injuries were reported following a chain-reaction accident Monday afternoon, four miles south of Red Oak. The Sheriff’s Department said a pickup driven by 28-year old Johnny Madden, of Red Oak, was stopped facing southbound at the intersection of Highway 48 and 250th Street at around 4:40-p.m.  Madden was waiting for a northbound car to pass so he could turn east onto 250th Street.

An SUV driven by 29-year old Brandy Pease, of Shenandoah, was stopped behind the pickup, when it was rear-ended by a car driven by 17-year old Moriah Kammerer, of Stanton. The teen told authorities she looked down for just a second, and when she looked up, was unable to stop in-time. The impact of the Kammerer vehicle hitting the SUV, caused it to be slammed into the rear of the pickup.

Damage to all three vehicles amounted to $17,800. No citations were issued at the scene.
