These accident reports were released this past week by law enforcement agencies:
US-56/77 at 260th Rd.
A two-car accident at 5:35 p.m. Feb. 17 was blamed on one driver’s attempt to pass a car that was in distress and whose driver was attempting to turn left off the highway.
Desire Brisby, 18, Abilene, was ticketed for allegedly improper passing after her 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix struck a turning 2008 Infiniti G37 owned and driven by Daniel Gilbert, 21, Fort Myers, Florida.
Brisby reported minor injuries but declined to be taken to a hospital by ambulance. Kasidy Anderson, 18, of a different Abilene address was a passenger in her car.
Gilbert’s Infiniti, which had its emergency flashers on at the time of the accident, had to be towed.

Adam Kleiber, 41, Hillsboro, was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and making an improper turn after he drove an Ag Services 2017 Ford F-150 pickup off the road while turning west onto Indigo at 12:01 a.m. Feb. 18.
The pickup struck a fence owned by Jonathan Maxfield and a county street sign before continuing about 400 feet into a field and running into a row of trees.
Kleiber had to be freed from the truck and suffered possible injuries but declined to be taken to a hospital. He instead was booked into Marion County Jail and released 5½ hours later on a $2,500 surety bond.
