Head On Collision
On April 24, 2023, at 11:45 a.m. the Lincoln County 911 Center advised of a head-on two vehicle accident near mile marker 174 on U.S. Highway 30 (just west of North Platte, NE.). Deputies and North Platte Fire and Rescue responded to the scene. U.S. Highway 30 was closed for about an hour while the accident was investigated.
Preliminary investigation showed an eastbound Nissan Altima crossed the center line while maneuvering a curve in the road. The Nissan struck a westbound Chevrolet pickup essentially in the driver’s side tire area. Both vehicles were totaled because of the accident and were towed away.
The driver of the Nissan was a juvenile who was believed to be suffering a medical issue. Both drivers were attended to by North Platte Rescue for non-life-threatening injuries. Drugs and Alcohol were not a factor, and all drivers were buckled up.
