WAYNE, NE – According to the Doniphan Herald, a 71-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash on NE 35 in Wayne on Saturday.
Authorities say the crash took place on Saturday evening near the intersection of Nebraska 35 and Centennial Road.

The Ford crossed directly in front of the motorcyclist’s path, causing the motorcyclist to crash into the Ford’s passenger side.
The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike and sustained serious injuries in the impact. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
The driver and one passenger of the Ford sustained minor injuries for which they received treatment.
