A 23-year-old Nebraska man died early Sunday as the result in a strange incident at a party in rural Washington County.
Capt. Kevin Willis of the Washington County Sheriff's Office said Seth A. Johnson of Hooper, Neb., died after being run over by a 2006 Dodge Ram pickup truck. Johnson apparently fell asleep behind the truck and was run over when the pickup truck driver, Jason S. Parcel, 29, of Oakland, Neb., decided to leave.
Johnson was taken to a hospital in Oakland, where he was pronounced dead.
“It's a tragic incident and our hearts go out to Mr. Johnson's friends and family,” Willis said.
The party took place on an acreage at 1951 County Road A in the northwest corner of the county after a tractor pull in another town. Willis said the accident remains under investigation.
