Man dragged under truck in two-vehicle crash near Kearney, sheriff’s office says

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A man was injured Thursday in a two-vehicle crash south of Kearney, the sheriff’s office says.

Around 2:30 p.m., Kearney County deputies were sent to the crash, which happened near the intersection of Highway 50A and Highway 44.

David Lewis, 72, was attempting to repair his pickup truck, which had been stalled in the eastbound lane of Highway 50A.

A camper was attached to the truck, according to the sheriff’s office.

Later on, a Chevy Silverado turned onto Highway 50A and hit the rear of the camper.

The collision caused the stalled truck to roll onto Lewis, dragging him underneath, the sheriff’s office says.

First responders took Lewis to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.  The extent of his injuries is unknown.

The driver of the Chevy had minor injuries.  Two other occupants in the vehicle were not injured.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
