State officials have added a couple of earlier traffic fatalities to the total in Nebraska after determining the deaths were caused by the traffic accidents rather than medical conditions.
The additions bring the death toll on Nebraska roadways in 2012 to 207.
51-year-old Donna Eipperle of Omaha died of injuries suffered in a two-car crash October 10th a day after the accident. The second fatality added to the total occurred on November 6th and involved a pedestrian, 79-year-old William Perkins of Nebraska City. Perkins suffered injuries when a car ran over him at an intersection in Nebraska City. He died 21 days after the wreck.
