A 76-year-old Lincoln woman died Sunday from the injuries she suffered in a traffic accident last week.
Maurine Mumma and her passenger, Amber Nieman, 16, of Lincoln were hospitalized with serious injuries after the crash Wednesday at 3:20 p.m.
Lincoln police said Cleon Finnell, 41, Raymond, Neb., was westbound on Nebraska Highway 2 in a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup truck when the accident occurred. Witnesses said that Mumma's 2007 Ford Taurus, which was eastbound on Highway 2, turned in front of Finnell's pickup, and he braked but was unable to avoid a crash. Mumma was turning north onto South 40th Street.
Finnell was treated for minor injuries and released from a hospital.
Finnell, Mumma and Nieman were wearing seat belts, police said, No citations have been issued in the crash.
Also last week, a 12-year-old Rushville, Neb., boy was killed in an accident in the Nebraska Panhandle, authorities said.
The Sheridan County Sheriff's Office said Matthew Jagers was killed and his mother, Melissa, 39, and sister Mickayla, 10, suffered serious injuries when their 2005 Ford Escape attempted to pass a vehicle Thursday on U.S. Highway 20 about five miles west of Gordon, Neb.
Jagers lost control of her Ford and was broadsided by an oncoming pickup truck driven by Kenneth Costello, 31, of Gordon, Deputy Richard Anderson said.
He said Highway 20 was snowy and icy at the time of the 7:30 a.m. crash.
Costello was treated at a hospital in Gordon and released, Anderson said, and Jagers was taken to a hospital in Scottsbluff and Mickayla was taken to a hospital in Scottsbluff.
No citations were issued, he said, and all four people involved in the crash were wearing seat belts.
