A Deputy was close to the location and found a female on the road that was unresponsive with obvious injuries. The Deputy began lifesaving techniques but to no avail. The female was pronounced dead at the scene. The female was identified as forty-five year old Brandy Lewis of Ogallala, NE.
Deputies met with Mrs. Lewis’ husband, fifty-nine year old Ted Lewis and driver of the vehicle.
