The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is investigating an accident that killed two and left one in critical condition near NW 98th and W Raymond Rd. early Saturday morning.
The sheriff's department says the two killed are Chad Spencer, 24, and Ryan Bostock, 24, both from Lincoln. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Close friends of Bostock say they'll remember his unique demeanor most.
"He was stubborn, the kind of stubborn you couldn't find anywhere else. like if he wanted to know your opinion he'd quickly learn it, quickly establish it, and there was no avoiding that," says Bostock's childhood friend Patrick Beezley.
"He's always really happy and cheerful," adds friend Alex Bullington.
The driver, Joshua Fagan, 24, also of Lincoln, was taken by StarCare Air Ambulance to Bryan Health West where he is currently in critical condition.
Sgt. Schmuecker says they were called to the scene around 6:30 a.m. after a car driving in the area spotted the vehicle in a nearby field.
Schmuecker says the accident happened around midnight. Alcohol and speed are both believed to be factors. The accident is still under investigation.
