An Audubon County Secondary Roads Department employee was injured during a dump truck rollover accident this (Wednesday) morning, north of Atlantic.
Cass County Chief Deputy Sheriff John Westering told KJAN News the accident happened at around 8:25-a.m., directly across from the Atlantic Head Start building, about 2.5-miles north of Atlantic, on Olive Street.
A witness to the accident told KJAN when a passenger car turned in front of the dump truck into the Headstart driveway, the dump truck driver swerved to avoid a collision and lost control. The truck, loaded with scrap metal, overturned into the east ditch and came to rest on its top. Another Audubon County Secondary Roads employee who was in a separate dump truck told us the driver of the wrecked truck 58-year-old Edward Leroy Nielsen, was wearing a seat belt and managed to free himself from the belt. He remained inside the vehicle until Atlantic Fire and Rescue and Medivac Ambulance personnel could safely remove him and transport the Nielsen to the Cass County Memorial Hospital.
