Driver gets 18 months probation for Cuming County fatality crash

WISNER, Neb. (AP) — A 20-year-old driver has been given 18 months of probation for the crash death of a woman in northeast Nebraska.

Cuming County Court records show Alexander Ausdemore was sentenced Wednesday. He’d pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vehicular homicide.

The accident occurred the morning of Sept. 11 last year on U.S. Highway 275 west of Wisner. The Cuming County Sheriff’s Office says a rear-end collision occurred, followed by ricochet collision as drivers slowed for a semitrailer that was turning into a farm drive. Authorities say Ausdemore apparently did not see the turning truck and ran into the back of another vehicle.

Authorities say 28-year-old Rachael Kucera was among those injured, and she died later at a West Point hospital. She lived in Stanton.
