Three people were killed and two others were injured early Tuesday when a car ran a stop sign east of Lexington, Nebraska.
Donald Anderson, 20, of Overton, Nebraska, Karli Michael, 27, of Pontiac, Illinois, and Ziera Nickerson, 18, of Kearney, all were pronounced dead at the scene. Angelique Kampmann, 20, of Elm Creek, Nebraska, and Ashley Kemp, 18, of Kearney, were injured in the crash and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, the Nebraska State Patrol said. They were listed there in serious condition.
Investigators said a Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Kampmann was traveling south on Dawson County Road 447 about 2 a.m. when it went through a stop sign at the intersection with U.S. Highway 30. The Chevrolet was struck on the passenger side by a Buick Enclave that was eastbound on Highway 30 about two miles east of Overton.
The driver of the Enclave, Kasey Rayburn, 37, of Elm Creek, was examined by emergency medical personnel at the crash site and released.
Lexington is about 35 miles west of Kearney.
