(Cumberland/Massena area) – In an update to our previous post, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, late this (Monday) afternoon, said multiple, minor injuries were reported following a collision on Highway 71. At around 11:29-a.m., a wide load semi was traveling southbound on the Highway.  The driver intended to turn east onto Highway 92.  In preparation for the wide load making the turn, the lead pilot car went to the crest of the first hill on Highway 92 east of Highway 71 to stop westbound traffic.

A pilot car operator stopped a 2019 Chevy 2500 pickup on Highway 92.  A 2007 Chevy Town and Country was westbound and did not see the pickup stopped on Highway 92.  The Town and Country rear ended the pickup. The accident took place just west of 640th and Highway 92. Persons in both vehicles were injured. They were transported to Cass Health in Atlantic.

No names have been released.
