Montana Woman Injured In Western Hancock County Crash

6/29/17 – 6:42 A.M.

A crash in Western Hancock County earlier this week injured a Montana woman. The Sheriff’s Office reports the near-collision happened just after 8 a.m. Monday at the intersection of State Route 12 and Hancock County Road 16.

59-year-old Joyce Berger of Pandora was driving on Road 16 when she pulled into the path of a car driven by 36-year-old Brandy Gertsen of Bozeman, Montana. Bozeman swerved to avoid the crash, causing her to go off the road and roll several times. Ottawa EMS took Bozeman to a Lima area hospital for treatment.

Deputies cited Berger for failure to yield.
