The Atlantic Police Department today (Tuesday) reports two arrests over the past few days and two accidents. On Sunday, 21-year old Curtis McCoy, of Atlantic, was arrested on a Cass County warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance, and on Friday, 30-year old Gwen Vanderhoof, of Atlantic, was arrested on a charge of Public Intoxication. Both subjects were booked into the Cass County Jail.
An accident Sunday morning at 7th and Chestnut Streets in Atlantic caused $13,500, but no one was injured. Officials say vehicles driven by Peter Smith and Nancy Reynolds, both of Atlantic, collided at around 10:30-a.m., when Reynolds failed to obey a stop light. She was subsequently cited for the infraction.
And on Saturday, vehicles driven by Jessica Mack and Joseph Fredericksen, both of Atlantic, collided at 7th and Linn Streets, at around 1:15-p.m. The P-D says Fredericksen was cited for having no proof of insurance, after his vehicle rear-ended the Mack vehicle after she lost control on the icy road as she applied her brakes. Her vehicle’s rear end spun around and was hit by Fredericksen’s vehicle on the right side. Damage from the collision amounted to $7,100.
