(Atlantic, Iowa) – The Cass County Sheriff’s Office has updated information about an accident that occurred Tuesday afternoon, west of Atlantic. Authorities say at around 12:19-p.m., the Cass County Sheriff’s Office and area first responders were called to the intersection of 570th and Galveston Road in rural Cass County for a two vehicle accident with injuries.  Emergency first responders found that a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport being operated by Courtney Cooper, of Exira, was traveling East on Galveston, approaching the intersection with 570th St.

At the same time, a 2019 Freightliner UPS truck being operated by Dallas Morrison, of Red Oak, was traveling North on 570th St.  When Cooper failed to yield to the right, her SUV struck the UPS truck, sending the truck into the North East ditch, when it rolled and landing back on it’s wheels.  Both drivers were transported to Cass Health by Cass EMS for what appeared to be non life-threatening injuries.
