Elderly Gering woman hospitalized after 27th Street accident

An elderly Gering woman is listed in stable condition at Regional West Medical Center after a two vehicle accident during the noon hour Tuesday the 600 block of W 27th ST.

The accident involved a white Cadillac that was driven by 84 year old Arlene Batt of Gering and a silver Dodge pickup that was driven by 19 year old Samantha Laur of Broadwater. The pickup was west bound on 27th when the white Cadillac failed to yield as it exited the Arby’s Restaurant and took a right hand turn.

The Dodge struck the driver’s side of the Cadillac as it entered W 27th ST. The Cadillac is a total loss and the Dodge sustained an estimated $7000 damage. Both vehicles were required to be towed due to damages.

Batt was transported to Regional West Medical Center by Valley Ambulance and was issued a citation for Failure to Yield. The Scottsbluff Fire Department and Valley Ambulance assisted in the response and West 27th Street was closed in both directions for approximately 40 minutes as the scene was being investigated and cleared.
