Gage County Sheriff’s authorities say Jason Meisenhelder had exited the rear door of a Dodge Ram Wagon Van, while the vehicle was moving.
Sheriff’s deputies, Beatrice Fire and Rescue and Pickrell Quick Response team members were sent to Southwest 2nd and Chesnut road at about 2:43, Sunday morning. Meisenhelder was in cardiac arrest and officials performed CPR.
He later died at Bryan LGH West Hospital, from his injuries. Law officers say alcohol use is believed to be a contributing factor. Authorities say the driver of the van was determined not to be at fault, in the incident.
