Broadside on Highway 75. Cass County sheriff’s deputies, Plattsmouth Police and Plattsmouth Fire and Plattsmouth EMS responded to a two vehicle injury accident at the intersection of Highway 75 and Mynard Road just after 1pm Saturday.
The Cassgram reports a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by Brian Hynes, age 40 of Louisville, was southbound on Highway 75 when a Chevy pickup driven by Randy Newburn, 57 of Plattsmouth, was eastbound and was stopped at the stop sign on Mynard road. Cass County Sheriff Wm. C. Brueggemann said Newburn failed to yield to the oncoming traffic and the Hynes Hyundai was unable to avoid the accident and collided broadside with the pickup on the driver side. There was major damage to both vehicles.
A female passenger in the Hynes vehicle was transported to Bellevue Medical Center for her injuries by Plattsmouth EMS. Neither driver was injured.
Speed and alcohol are not factors in the accident, said Brueggemann.
