An announced candidate for the Unicameral has been killed in a sledding accident in north-central Nebraska.
The Holt County Attorney’s Office reports 58-year-old George Holm of O’Neill died of injuries sustained when he and a child on a snow sled slammed into a tree stump. The office reports the two were traveling at a high speed when they hit the stump Sunday afternoon about 19 miles north of O’Neill. Holm protected the child from injury, according to authorities.
Holm was a Democrat who had declared his candidacy for the seat now held by Sen. Tyson Larson of O’Neill who has to leave the legislature due to term limits.
