On Thursday evening about 5:45 p.m. the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to and investigated a two vehicle accident at the Hwy 275 and Hwy 15 (Wayne Spur) that sent one driver to the hospital. The accident occurred when a Pickup driven by a 24 year old female from Fairbury attempted to turn North onto Hwy 15 and failed to yield to a westbound SUV driven by a 58 year old male from Long Pine, causing the two to collide in the intersection. The wreckage blocked the highway and the male driver was taken to FRHS in Norfolk by Wisner Rescue. Seatbelts were in use and airbags did deploy. Both vehicles were considered total losses and Wisner Police and the Cuming County Sheriff’s office assisted at the scene.
