Authorities in Page County report three teens suffered “non-incapacitating” injuries when the pickup they were in went out of control and rolled over Saturday afternoon, about two-miles east of Clarinda. Officials say 16-year old Dakota Anthony Brittain, of Clarinda, was driving too fast for the roadway when the accident occurred at around 2:50-p.m.
Brittain was driving a 1991 GMC Sierra pickup on Tolbert Avenue, just north of 210th Street, when he attempted to negotiate a curve in the road. The pickup went out of control and slide sideways into a ditch before overturning and hitting a tree. Damage to the truck was estimated at $5,000. Brittain, and two passengers in the truck, 15-year old Bailey Latham, of Clarinda, and 16-year old Tristlynn Jae Roberts, of Skidmore, MO., were transported by Clarinda EMS to the Clarinda Regional Health Care Center, for treatment of their injuries.
