The Atlantic Police Dept. reports one person suffered minor injuries during a three vehicle, chain reaction accident in Atlantic, Monday night. Officials say at around 5:45-p.m., vehicles driven by Shandi Christensen, of Atlantic, and Gretchen Beer, of Anita, were both eastbound on 7th Street and stopped at the red light at the intersection with Plum Street. Another eastbound vehicle, driven by Samantha Schroeder, of Atlantic, failed to stop in time.
Her vehicle hit the rear of Beer’s vehicle, which then struck the rear of the Christensen vehicle. Authorities say Beer was transported by private vehicle to the Cass County Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in Christensen’s vehicle hit the window with his head, but was not transported.
Schroeder was cited for Failure to Stop in Assured Clear Distance. Damage from the collisions amounted to $6,800.
