The Atlantic Police Department this (Friday) morning, released the names of two persons whose bodies were found in a vehicle which crashed Thursday night, near the Cass County Memorial Hospital. In a report released just after 9-a.m., officials say a van driven by 86-year old Lenard Schroder crashed into a small ditch just south of 10th Street, west of the CCMH west driveway entrance. The accident, which happened at around 9:50-p.m., claimed the lives of Lenard and 83-year old Annabel Schroder, both of whom are from Atlantic.

Officials suspect a medical condition may have led to the crash, which remains under investigation.
