Clarinda Police Chief Keith Brothers today (Tuesday) released information about an accident that happened last Thursday night. Brothers said a 2007 Ford Mustang GT driven by 28-year old Megan Warrick, of Clarinda, was traveling west on the Highway 2 bypass at around 11-p.m., when the car went off the road to right and into the ditch on the north side of the road.

The car then slid clockwise and sideways before the driver’s side hit a flag pole. The front end of the vehicle then hit the southwest corner of a screened-in front porch of a residence at 1101 S. 22nd Street and continued a clockwise spin before running over a wooden swing set behind the home. The car also hit the south wall of an unattached garage before it entered the garage and hit another Ford Mustang parked in the garage.

Warrick’s car exited the garage backwards out the west wall before coming to rest. Warrick got out of her car and left the scene on foot. No long afterward, Clarinda Police were called to 907 Meadowridge Drive, after they received a report a woman was ringing the door bell.

Pickup hits school bus in Underwood – no serious injuries

News

January 28th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Authorities in Pottawattamie County say there were no serious injuries reported after a pickup truck struck an Underwood Community School District bus Monday morning. The accident happened at around 9:40-a.m. at the intersection of 270th Street and Elmtree Road. Sheriff Jeff Danker told the Daily NonPareil says the bus driven by 46-year old Joel Phillips, of McClelland, was carrying students to Underwood Community Schools, when an eastbound black Chevy pickup driven by 16-year old  Austin Hiers, of Council Bluffs, allegedly ran a stop sign. Hiers’ truck was struck on its right side by the bus. The pickup then left the roadway and went down an embankment into a yard.

Underwood schools, like many in the area, were starting two hours late Monday, due to the bitterly cold conditions.

The paper reports the front bumper of the bus was bent in, limiting the movement of the wheel, so another bus was called in to take the children to school. A tow truck was able to bend the bumper back out using its winch, which made the bus driveable again. The pickup truck sustained extensive damage to its right side. Hiers was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign.
