At about 3:10 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to and investigated a one vehicle accident on 576th Avenue about ten miles southeast of Pilger. The accident occurred when a northbound pickup driven by Amanda Beerbohm, 32, of rural Pilger left the roadway and travelled through a ditch striking a metal power pole. Beerbohm was treated at the scene by Pilger Rescue and declined further transport. Seatbelts are credited with lessening any serious injuries. Cuming County Power District also responded to the scene.
