On March 21, 2019 at 6:50 p.m., the North Platte 911 Center was contacted advising a subject had wrecked a four wheeler on U.S. Highway 30 just west of North Platte. The caller advised the subject sustained serious injuries. Deputies and North Platte Fire and Rescue responded to the scene.
The investigation revealed the lone driver of a four wheeler was westbound on U.S. Highway 30 and raised his hand to wave at a friend and lost control of the machine. The driver was thrown off the four wheeler onto the road surface.
The driver was identified as twenty-seven year old Steven Conway of North Platte, NE. Mr. Conway was transported to Great Plains Health and later flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney with life threatening injuries. Drugs and Alcohol do not appear to be a contributing factor.
