Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer reported today (Friday), one person was taken to the hospital in Clarinda following a motorcycle accident which occurred Monday afternoon. 61-year old Deborah Snyder, of Shenandoah, suffered non-incapacitating injuries, when the 2000 Suzuki Savage she was driving went out of control on a curve, as she was traveling south on M Avenue in Page County. The cycle entered the south ditch and tipped over, causing $500 damage. The accident happened at around 2:45-p.m. No citations were issued.
Sheriff Palmer also reported there were no injuries following two separate vehicle versus deer accidents early this (Friday) morning. At around 3-a.m., a car driven by 20-year old Dakota Kirkpatrick, of Bedford, sustained $3,500 damage, after the man swerved to avoid hitting a deer. The 2003 Kia Spectra went out of control and slid sideways into a ditch, crossed a washout and came to rest against the south embankment. Kirkpatrick tried to drive out of the ditch but ended-up getting stuck. The accident happened about two-miles north of the Iowa-Missouri line, on Highway 2.
The other accident happened at around 6:30-a.m., when a 2007 Toyota driven by 52-year old Randy Leigh, of Council Bluffs, hit a deer on Highway 2. His vehicle sustained $5,000 damage.
