A Cass County Sheriff’s deputy was hurt after getting into a wreck while responding to a traffic accident in western Iowa Sunday night. Deputy Kyle Quist was responding to a personal injury rollover accident on Interstate 80 at mile marker 56, when the sheriff’s department pickup he was driving rear-ended another pickup that was about to turn onto a gravel road, at around 5:30-p.m. The accident occurred about a quarter-mile south of I-80, at the intersection of Olive Street and Boston Road. Sheriff Bill Sage said his deputy – who was hired just six-months ago – was taken to the Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic, where he was being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the other pickup and his passenger were not injured. Both said they neither saw the deputy’s flashing lights nor heard a siren prior to the accident. The accident remains under investigation.
