BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities have released the name of a 54-year-old Fairbury woman who was killed in a collision on an icy highway in southeast Nebraska.
She was identified as Suzan Debourge. The Nebraska State Patrol says the Thursday morning crash occurred near the Gage County and Jefferson County line along U.S. Highway 136. Officials say strong winds created whiteout conditions.
The Gage County Sheriff's Office says Debourge's sport utility vehicle slid across the center line and hit an oncoming pickup driven by 61-year-old Thomas Lohmeier, of Hebron. Lohmeier was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
