Friday, October 12, 2012

Driver cited for driving while suspended, failure to obey stop sign

A 10-year-old girl was life-flighted to Sioux Falls and treated for incapacitating injuries following an accident, early Tuesday evening at the intersection of 340th Street and 290th Avenue.

Calvin Pomeroy, 20, of Ruthven, was traveling eastbound on 340th Street in a 1993 Dodge W-250 pickup and allegedly failed to obey a stop sign at 290th Avenue. Jason Greiner, 35, of Dickens, was traveling northbound on 290th Avenue, in a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager, striking the passenger side of the Dodge pickup.

Jennifer Mills, a 30-year-old passenger in the Greiner vehicle, sustained minor injuries in the accident.

Pomeroy was charged with driving while suspended and failure to obey a stop sign.

Damage to the Grand Voyager was estimated at $6,000 and the Dodge pickup received an estimated $4,000 in damages.

Which vehicle was the 10-year-old in?

On the KICD website it states that the girl was a passenger in the Greiner vehicle.

Good thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.

Redundancy is alive & well. It seems that a lot of folks either don't realise what they are saying or writing, or think that the listening/reading public is dumb and doesn't know what they are reading/hearing.

In this instance, you printed, 'traveling Eastbound/Northbound'. Correct use of the language would be 'traveling East or North', or just 'Eastbound/Northbound'.

Thanks for your interest.

KARLOS, hypocritical much? You did not even spell "realize" correct.
