Subject Struck by Vehicle
On August 27, 2017 around 08:00 p.m., Deputies were called to the Lake Maloney Inlet on the report of a male subject was struck by a vehicle. Deputies discovered a male subject was run over by a pickup at the Kansas Point Camping Area. North Platte Rescue responded and transported the subject to Great Plains Health.
Preliminary investigation revealed the male subject was in a domestic disturbance with his wife and she attempted to leave the area. The male subject grabbed on to the passenger side of the vehicle and was drug down the gravel road. Eventually the male subject was run over by the rear tire of the vehicle.
Deputies identified the male subject as forty-six year old James Branam of North Platte. The driver was identified as fifty-six year old Tina Branam of North Platte. The investigation into this matter continues. It appears alcohol is a factor in this case.
