— Authorities say a 42-year-old Scotia woman died after her
car rammed into a semitrailer in east-central Nebraska.
County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred about 10:15 a.m.
Wednesday, about six miles west of St. Edward. The office says Jennifer
Markvicka was driving east on Nebraska Highway 56 and didn't halt at the
stop sign controlling the intersection with Nebraska Highway 14. Her
car hit the side of the southbound big rig.
She and the truck
driver Billy Russell, of Omaha, were taken to Boone County Health
Center. Authorities say Markvicka died of her injuries. Russell's
injuries weren't believed to be life-threatening.
