A 91-year-old North Platte woman died after a crash on Interstate 80 Sunday.
According to the Nebraska State Patrol, Emma Darnel was driving west on I-80 when she tired to make a U-turn and was struck by a pickup also traveling west.
Darnel’s car was knocked into the median and she was killed. The accident happened just before one Sunday afternoon a half mile west of North Platte.
The driver of the pickup, 54-year-old Steven Marcone of McHenry, Maryland, and his wife Roberts were treated at Great Plains Regional Medical Center in North Platte and released.
Both the Marcones and Darnel were wearing seat belts.
