Head-on collision in Logan County kills one, injures two

A head-on collision killed one and injured two this weekend in Logan County.

The Nebraska State Patrol reports a pick-up driven by 71-year-old Jesus Torres of North Platte collided with a mini-van, killing the driver, 67-year-old Roger Beckett of Stapleton. Beckett’s wife, Barbara, suffered serious injury and was taken by life-flight to a hospital. Torres also suffered injury and was taken to a hospital.

The patrol suspects alcohol played a role in the crash.

The investigation continues.
