LINCOLN, NE – One person was killed and another injured in a car accident in Lincoln Sunday morning, according to a report by KOLN.
Authorities said a 24-year-old man was driving a Ford Mustang at about 7:45 a.m. when he lost control while turning onto the westbound on-ramp of Interstate 80 from North 27th Street.
The car went off the roadway and rolled over. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. A female passenger sustained injuries that were not life-threatening. She was checked out by Lincoln Fire and Rescue and left on her own.
