AUBURN – An Auburn woman was seriously injured Thursday in a three-car accident on Highway 75 in Auburn.
The vehicles included a 2016 Ford pickup driven by Tyler T. Deters, 21, of Baileyville, Kan., a 2005 Chevrolet sedan driven by Cynthia A. Genthe, 63, of Auburn and 2006 Jeep driven by Barbara E. Lunzmann, 66, of Auburn.
The Nemaha County sheriff’s office reports that all were southbound on the highway when the pickup slowed to turn near 11th Street by the Sonic restaurant. Investigators say Genthe also slowed down, but the Jeep hit her vehicle and pushed it into the pickup.
Genthe suffered serious injury and her vehicle sustained an estimated $4,000 in damage. Auburn Rescue took her to the Nemaha County Hospital.
