The most recent motor vehicle incident took place on Sunday at around 3:15 p.m. The related document indicates that 56-year-old Carla Long of Denison was backing out of a driveway on the 1100 block of North 26th Street in a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox. She reportedly backed into a 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew parked on the other side of the street. No injuries were reported and both vehicles were driven away from the scene. Damage estimates totaled $1,250 which includes $1,000 for the Equinox and $250 for the Ford pickup.

A separate traffic accident happened on Saturday at just before 12:30 p.m. Police say 58-year-old Douglas Rasmussen of Kearney, NE was southbound on Highway 59 in 2011 Mercury Milan approaching the intersection with eastbound Highway 30. A 2015 GMC Sierra driven by 30-year-old Matthew Riessen was eastbound on 30 crossing onto 59 at the south junction. Rasmussen's Milan struck the trailer behind Riessen's GMC at the left dual axles resulting in damage to the undercarriage. The Milan came to rest in the south triangular ditch. Officers later reported Rasmussen being unfamiliar with the intersection and that he did not realize that eastbound Highway 30 traffic does not stop. No injuries were reported. Rasmussen was cited for failing to obey the posted stop signs and having no valid drivers license. Riessen was able to drive his truck away from the scene with a repair cost estimate of $750. Police arranged for Rasmussen's disabled Milan to be towed after it sustained roughly $7,000 in damage.
