A 16-year-old boy remained in critical condition at an Omaha hospital Thursday after being thrown from a vehicle in a rollover crash near Weeping Water, authorities said.
Kyle D. Baxter of Weeping Water was taken to Nebraska Medical Center on Tuesday.
Baxter had been driving a 2001 Nissan Xterra north on 120th Street near Mckelvie Road shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday. The vehicle went out of control on the gravel road and rolled several times before landing in a bean field, investigators from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office determined.
A female juvenile passenger who was using a seat belt was able to exit the Nissan and call for help at a nearby residence, according to the Sheriff’s Office report. It wasn’t immediately clear if Baxter was using a seat belt.
The incident is under investigation but alcohol is not considered a factor, the report said.
