DUI Charge Filed After Injury Accident Near Auburn

AUBURN – A Johnson man is charged with causing serious bodily injury while driving under the influence on Nov. 4.

The charge stems from a roll-over accident on Road 728 west of Auburn. A Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office report says 41-year-old Matthew K. Williams was driving a 2006 Saturn when he lost control. The car left the roadway, sliding sidewise and rolling at least once before coming to rest on the driver’s side.

A passenger, 21-year-old Shyann McRoberts of Talmage, was ejected from the compact vehicle. Rescue crews found her about 50 feet east of where the westbound vehicle came to a stop.

Auburn Rescue transported her to the Nemaha County Hospital with serious injuries.

Williams is scheduled for a Dec. 12 arraignment in Nemaha County Court.
