A 14 vehicle pile up in a blinding blizzard west of Beatrice, sent six people to the hospital, Sunday. The accident happened along Nebraska Highway four during whiteout conditions, at about noon. Beatrice Fire and Rescue Captain Jake Carrel says the multi-vehicle collision happened on the highway between Southwest 117th and Southwest 131st.
“It was slow going getting out there and no exaggeration when I say there was zero visibility….with the blowing snow.”
Carrel says a half-dozen people involved in the chain-reaction collisions were taken to Beatrice Community Hospital.
