An accident on a local highway ended in tragedy when one man was killed and two others were sent to hospital, according to local authorities. Nebraska police are still investigating the car accident that injured two prominent local baseball coaches. Police are not speculating on the cause of the accident at this time.
Collisions are frightening events for anyone to be a part of. When the vehicles involved in the accident are similar in size, the risk of injuries is possibly much less than when a crash occurs between two vehicles of varying size, such as a truck and a motorcycle. When a truck accident like this occurs, the results are all too often devastating. Being a patient and observant driver can help lessen the chance of an accident occurring.
A woman who said she left her native state to escape growing violence has been tragically killed in a car wreck, according to local authorities. The woman, who moved to Nebraska thirteen years ago, was killed when a prison inmate driving a van collided with her vehicle. Police are investigating the specifics of the car accident, but no charges have yet been filed.
OSHA conducted an investigation after the death of a worker and found a Nebraska company to have several serious safety violations. Witt Plumbing Inc. has been placed on the Severe Violator Enforcement Program as a result of the on-the-job injury that resulted in the employee's death. The worker was injured and later died after the trench he was working in collapsed on him. OSHA has determined that the violations, two of which were attributed to gross negligence, are a result of the company's failure to ensure all safety measures were enforced. The finding was made concerning an accident that occurred earlier this year.
