Woman Dies in Single-Car Crash in Nuckolls County

Posted: Updated:

SUPERIOR, Neb. (AP) — The Nuckolls County sheriff's office says a 31-year-old woman had died in a one-vehicle crash near Superior in south-central Nebraska.

According to the Hastings Tribune, Renae L. Wheeland, of Nelson, died in the crash Saturday along Nebraska Highway 14, about a mile north of Superior.

The sheriff's office says Wheeland was northbound in a sport utility vehicle when she swerved to avoid hitting a car that apparently pulled out in front of her. She avoided the car but entered a ditch, hit an embankment and rolled several times. She was thrown from her SUV.

The car had been at a stop sign before pulling onto the highway. It was occupied by two teenage girls.

The sheriff's office is investigating the crash.
