One person died, another suffered critical injury in a head-on collision near Lincoln Sunday.
Chief Lancaster County Deputy Sheriff Jeff Bleimeister tells reporters during a media briefing that 31-year-old Mario Garcia of Omaha died at the scene. 44-year-old Merri Bradley of rural Crete has been taken to Bryan Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.
Bleimeister says Garcia was driving north on Southwest 100th Street between Nebraska Highway 33 and Wittstruck Road when his car crossed the center line and hit Bradley’s southbound car.
Bliemeister says they are attempting to determine why Garcia’s car crossed into the northbound lane.
