Man ejected from truck in fiery two-vehicle crash in Lancaster County

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A man was ejected from his truck Thursday in a two-vehicle crash in rural Lancaster County, the sheriff’s office says.

The Southeast Fire and Rescue Department responded to a crash near North 112th Street and Fletcher Avenue just after 2:30 p.m.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says a 29-year-old man was ejected when his truck collided head-on with a GMC Terrain.

One of the vehicles started on fire, but crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.

Both drivers were taken to a hospital, and the driver of the GMC has since been released.

The 29-year-old remains in the hospital in critical condition.

Deputies cited the 29-year-old on suspicion of driving left of center.  Wagner is unsure if he was wearing a seat belt or not.

Drugs and alcohol were not factors in the crash, according to Wagner.

Both vehicles are total losses, according to the fire department.
