1 dead, 1 critically injured in Nebraska rollover crash

A car accident that occurred in Nebraska on June 26 left one woman dead and a man critically injured. According to the Nebraska State Patrol, the single-vehicle crash took place on U.S. Highway 83 just north of McCook at approximately 12:30 a.m. It was not reported how the accident occurred.

It was known that the deceased woman, aged 43, was driving the vehicle while the injured man, age 42, was a passenger when the vehicle rolled over. Both individuals were reportedly not wearing seat belts when the incident took place, causing them to be ejected from the vehicle. The man was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. His condition was not reported. It was not known if the woman was taken to a nearby hospital prior to her death or if she was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

While the cause of this accident was not known, there are many potential factors that could have played into this particular incident. For example, the woman, who appeared to have been driving, may have been drunk or under the influence of drugs when the crash occurred, she could have been driving while fatigued or she could have been driving too fast for the roadway. Regardless of what caused the accident, she may still be held responsible for the crash.

Because the driver did not survive this incident, the injured man may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the woman's estate. By filing this type of lawsuit, the injured man may be able to seek compensation for a wide range of damages, including the cost of his medical bills, any future medical bills that may be incurred due to future treatment and even compensation for pain and suffering.
