Two people were injured during a car-versus-tractor collision Wednesday night, north of Atlantic. According to dispatch reports, a tractor and a Honda Accord collided about a mile south of Boston Road on Highway 173 (590th St.), at around 9:05-p.m.  An elderly male and female were reportedly suffering from neck pain and other, possible/unknown injuries. Both were transported to the Cass County Memorial Hospital with what were considered to be non-life threatening injuries. The woman was later flown to an Omaha hospital for additional treatment.

Officials indicated the accident happened as the car hit the tractor from behind as both were traveling south and the tractor, which was pulling a seed carrier, was attempting to pull into a residential driveway. The driver of the tractor was not injured.
