Two residents from western Iowa’s Cass County were killed in separate accidents over the weekend. An elderly woman from Atlantic died Saturday when the Buick she was a passenger in was struck by a Ford Mustang as the Buick was turning into a shopping center driveway at 78th and Dodge Streets in Omaha. The victim was identified as 80-year Lavonne Glissman.
And, a man from Anita died early Sunday morning when the pickup he was driving went out of control west of Lewis. 24-year old Matthew James Rogers was ejected from the vehicle when it entered a ditch. Officials say he was not wearing a seatbelt.
