EAGLE, NE – Investigators with the Cass County Sheriff’s office have reported one fatality and at least one injured as the result of a two-vehicle crash Saturday night.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, the accident occurred around 8:45 p.m. within the intersection of U.S. Highway 34 and State Highway 63.
Police believe the 17-year-old girl behind the wheel of a 2011 Nissan Altima was traveling southbound on SH-63 when she ran a stop sign and was struck by a 2013 Dodge Charger.
The force of the impact ejected the driver from the Nissan and left her 17-year-old passenger pinned inside. Emergency crews were able to extricate the passenger and transport both occupants to Bryan Medical Center in Lincoln where the driver was pronounced deceased a short time later. Their identities are being withheld at this time.
The two occupants in the Dodge, 18-year-old Macy Persinger and 18-year-old Hunter Tucker, did not sustain serious injuries as a result of the crash.
