PLATTSMOUTH – A 48-year-old man from Kansas City, Mo., was taken to a hospital April 17 after being involved in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of U.S. Highway 75 and Nebraska Highway 66.
The accident happened around 1:30 p.m.
According to the Cass County Sheriff’s Department, Marvin Hammons was driving north on Hwy. 75 in a 2006 Jeep Liberty when he crossed the center line and struck a southbound semi-truck driven by 46-year-old Edward Harvey of Pleasant Hill, Mo.
The Jeep sustained heavy front end damage and traffic was stopped a long way for a time until there was room to drive around the scene.
Hammons was transported by Plattsmouth Fire and Rescue personnel to Nebraska Medicine in Omaha with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Harvey did not require medical treatment.
Marijuana and concentrated THC were located in Hammons’ vehicle and charges are pending lab results.
