Good Samaritan Killed in Auto Accident

While Peter R. Holland was trying to be a Good Samaritan and help render aid to victims of a car accident he was sadly killed by another vehicle that struck him. The couple in the first accident were headed southbound when the car ran off the road on a curve and struck a tree. Holland came to their aid and was standing just off the roadway when another vehicle ran off the road on the same curve. The others involved had only minor injuries.

Man Injured in Two-Car Accident

Alcohol or drugs are believed to be a factor in a two-car accident that injured one man. Randall L. Persinger was headed eastbound when his Nissan Maxima went off the road. After overcorrecting Persinger hit a Toyota 4Runner also going east. The other driver, David M. Bock was not hurt, but Persinger was taken to Kadlee Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released. This accident is still being investigated for the relation of alcohol and drugs.
