NEBRASKA CITY – A three-vehicle accident on Highway 75 north of Nebraska City Thursday resulted in minor injuries.
The Otoe County Sheriff’s Office reports that 26-year-old Kenneth Pippin of Omaha was following a northbound truck and semi-trailer when the truck slowed down near C Road.
Pippin lost control of his Subaru wagon while braking and hit a tire on the trailer before bouncing into the southbound lane of the highway, where there was a collision with a Econoline van driven by 40-year-old Jeremy Mitchell of Auburn.
The van was forced into the ditch that had been filled with snow drifts.
The truck driver, 62-year-old Douglas Rosenthal of Lincoln, was uninjured. Nebraska City Rescue took Pippin to a hospital.
