Tuesday afternoon the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a four car accident on the Sidney Courthouse Square.
The accident started when a vehicle driven by Patricia Mintle was backing out of a parking stall on the west side of the square when her foot, that was slippery from the road conditions slipped off of the brake and hit the gas pedal causing it to back from the parking stall striking right rear corner of a car driven by Twilia Larson of Sidney. The Mintle vehicle then struck another vehicle that was parked on the street that was owned by Donna Nenneman of Hamburg. The Mintle vehicle then continued on striking a car owned by Patricia Freer of Shenandoah. Mintle was cited for unsafe backing.
