Wednesday Night Crash Near Prague Kills One Person, Injures Four Others

LINCOLN–(KFOR Jan. 27)–One person died at an Omaha hospital, after being hurt in a head-on crash Wednesday night in western Saunders County.

Saunders County Sheriff’s investigators say the crash happened along Highway 79 about 4 miles north of Prague, where a 20-year-old Lincoln woman was driving a Toyota Camry that crossed the center line and hit a Buick Regal that had two adults and two children. All five were taken to a Fremont hospital before being transferred to UNMC in Omaha.

Of the four people in the Regal, a woman who was the front passenger died. The man driving is still being treated for serious injuries. A 3-year-old has life-threatening injuries, while a 6-year-old is recovering from non-life threatening injuries.

The Lincoln woman driving the Camry wasn’t seriously hurt. Deputies say they don’t believe alcohol was a factor.
