A teen and an adult were injured during an accident that happened Thursday afternoon,  three-miles west of Brayton, in Audubon County. Sheriff’s officials say a 2004 Dodge driven by 16-year old Morgan Marie Bailey, of Exira, was traveling south on Falcon Avenue, when the vehicle went out of control near the intersection with 320th Street.

The car entered the west ditch and came to rest after hitting an embankment. Bailey, and her passenger, 27-year old William Weston, of Exira, were transported by private vehicle to the Cass County Memorial Hospital, in Atlantic. The Sheriff’s Department wasn’t notified about the crash until around 9:45-p.m.

Bailey was charged with Failure to Maintain Control. The accident caused about $5,500 damage.
