THREE INJURED IN CASS COUNTY ACCIDENT
(ATLANTIC) Three people were injured in a single vehicle accident on I-80 in Cass County this (Monday) morning.
The Iowa State Patrol says 31-year-old Ebony Porter and 27-year-old Marquita Adams; both of Peoria, Illinois, and 26-year-old Paul Lee of Union City, California were all transported to Cass County Memorial Hospital by Anita Rescue.
According to the report, Porter was driving a 2011 Nissan Sentra eastbound on I-80 in the right lane when she went into the left lane to pass another non-contact vehicle. The left rear tire went off the shoulder into the median and Porter attempted to hit the brakes, but hit the gas pedal by mistake. The vehicle went across both lanes into the south ditch where it struck a farm fence and came to rest in a corn field.
