No injuries were reported following two separate accidents this week, in Harlan. Both crashes were the result of a driver failing to obey a stop sign. The Harlan Police Department says one of the collisions happened Sunday, at the intersection of Highways 44 and 59. Officials say Sharon Petersen, of Harlan, was cited for Failure to Obey a Stop sign, after her 2003 Cadillac hit a 2004 Ford Mustang, driven by Lori Tarney, of Portsmouth. The damages amounted to $3,400.

The second accident happened Wednesday, at the intersection of Southwest and Industrial Avenues, in Harlan. The H-PD says Cindy Morrison, of Portsmouth, was cited for failure to obey a stop sign, after her 2005 Hyundai was hit by a 2005 Chrysler, driven by Tricia Pearson, of Harlan.
