An investigation continues into the death of a teenage girl, killed when her car collided with a semi tractor-trailer in north-central Nebraska.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office reports 17-year-old Chaeley Ruegge of Ainsworth died when her car hit the truck head-on just east of Ainsworth on U.S. Highway 20. Investigators say Ruegge’s car crossed the center line while traveling east and struck the truck which was traveling west.
The accident occurred last Thursday evening.
The truck driver, 45-year-old Brian Warren of Scottsbluff, was not injured in the crash.
