(Crawford)-Icy roads were to blame for two accidents in Crawford on Friday morning. According to Dawes County Sheriff Karl Dailey, the first accident occurred at the corner of Highway 2/71 and Main Street, and was followed shortly after at the same location by the second accident.
Dailey said a deputy was investigating an accident at the intersection in which Keelyn Hubbard, age 23, driving a Dodge Avenger, slid on the ice as she was southbound on Highway 2/71. Her car struck the curb on the southwest corner, and sustained approximately $2000 damage to the left front portion of her vehicle.
While the sheriff’s deputy was investigating the accident and was out of his cruiser, a southbound Chevrolet pickup, driven by David Moore, age 67, attempted to turn from Highway 2/71 onto Main Street, and the vehicle slid on the ice. The deputy was not injured when the pickup slid into the parked cruiser. Moore did not suffer any injuries.
Dailey stated that the cruiser suffered the most damage, estimated at approximately $3500, and they will have to have it repaired. Moore’s pickup sustained approximately $500 in damage. The Nebraska State Patrol investigated the accident involving the Sheriff’s cruiser.
