One person is dead and three others are hospitalized after an early morning accident along Cornhusker Highway.

It happened Wednesday morning around 8:30am when a car lost control around a bend in the road near 15th and Cornhusker.

The accident shut down traffic for hours while authorities investigated exactly what happened.

Police have released the name of the person who was killed. She is 19 year old Kelli Martin of Lincoln. Three others are in serious condition, including the driver of the car, Antonio Banks. Passenger Kayla Uldrich and the driver of the black Dodge pickup Ralph Archuleta. Another passenger in the car, Jessica Eby of Lincoln is in critical condition..
