A woman is dead after a car drove into a ditch and rolled in eastern Nebraska.
Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says deputies responded to a call just south of Norris High School Monday night that a car had driven into a ditch. Lincoln Fire and Rescue and First Rural Fire also responded.
“The investigation revealed that the driver and lone occupant of a silver 2003 Acura was travelling Southbound on 68th St. when it (the car) left the roadway, entered the ditch on the west-side of the roadway and rolled,” says Wagner.
The victim was not wearing a seat-belt and was ejected from vehicle, according to Wagner. The victim was flown from the scene to Bryan West Hospital in Lincoln where she was pronounced dead.
She is identified as 33-year-old Stephanie Leard of Hickman.
Additional details, like whether alcohol was involved in the crash, are still being determined by investigators.
