Unadilla Man Killed In Crash

A two-vehicle crash on state Highway 2 in southeast Nebraska has left an elderly Unadilla man dead.

The Otoe County Sheriff's office says the crash happened around 8:30 yesterday morning in dense fog, about three miles west of Unadilla.

Investigators say a semitrailer driven by a 55-year-old Georgia man crashed into the back of a car which had just turned onto Highway 2 and was driven by 81-year-old Merwyn Eloise Stubbendick of Unadilla.

A passenger in the car, 81-year-old Edgar Stubbendick, was taken to a Lincoln hospital, where he died. Unadilla is about 45 miles south of Omaha.
