(Elk Horn) A Shelby County Road Department employee suffered minor injuries in a rollover accident east of Elk Horn Wednesday morning.
According to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, 45-year-old Tracy Klein, of Harlan was injured in the accident that occurred at around 6:55 a.m. on county highway F-58 one mile east of Elk Horn.
