NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) — A southeast Nebraska sheriff says two women and two children from Kansas died in a crash.
Cass County Sheriff’s Capt. David Lamprecht says all those killed in the crash Sunday evening were from Topeka.
The wreck happened on Highway 75 north of Nebraska City.
The sheriff’s office says its investigation revealed a 2000 Chevrolet truck driven by Ronald Dubas, 55, of La Vista, Nebraska, was northbound on Highway 75 when it crossed the center line and collided with a southbound 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by 21-year-old female.
Four of the five people in the Cobalt died. They are the 21-year-old driver and 3 people in the backseat: a 22-year-old woman, a 4-year-old girl and a 5-year-old girl. A passenger in the front seat is listed in critical condition at an Omaha hospital.
Dubas was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
