Two Injured in Three-Vehicle Accident

PILGER - The Stanton County Sheriff's office is investigating a three-car accident Saturday night that sent two people to the hospital. The accident occurred about 8:00 at the north junction of Highways 275 and 15, when a car driven by Rose Duncan, age 53 of Newcastle, turned into the path of a westbound vehicle driven by Preciosa Polt, age 42 of Pierce. The collision caused the Polt vehicle to strike a third vehicle that was stopped at the intersection. Both Polt and Duncan had to be extricated from the wreckage of their vehicles by Pilger Fire and Rescue, and both were taken to Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
