His name has not been released. He was 53-years-old.
Beatrice Police Sergeant Brian Carver tells Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KWBE that witnesses say the Corvette drove along an access road to the shopping mall at a high rate of speed. The car hit three park vehicles before slamming into a light pole.
No one else was injured in the accident that happened Tuesday afternoon.
