Minor Injuries Reported In Two-Vehicle Accident

Two Elgin residents escaped serious injury last Friday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident north of Elgin.
According to Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore, Elgin Rescue and Volunteer Fire Department responded to an accident-with-injuries call at 12:17 p.m.
An eastbound 2013 Chevy Silverado pickup driven by Pam Dinslage of rural Elgin was stopped at the 841 Road and Highway 14 intersection (north edge of the West Cedar Valley/St. Boniface cemeteries). Dinslage proceeded through the intersection where she struck a northbound 2008 Dodge pickup driven by Scott Beckman of rural Elgin. The Silverado struck the Dodge on the back corner of the box on the driver’s side. The force of the impact caused the Dodge to go sideways into the intersection’s northeast corner ditch and tip over onto its passenger side. Beckman was able to get out of the overturned pickup on his own. Sheriff Moore said that, while both Dinslage and Beckman appeared to be okay at the scene,  Beckman was transported to Boone County Health Center in Albion to be evaluated and was released with no major injuries.
Moore said both drivers were wearing their seatbelts and the official report listed both vehicles as having moderate damage so neither was considered totaled.
