Southern Gage County highway intersection wreck injures one
BEATRICE – A southern Gage County accident Wednesday morning caused injuries to one of two drivers involved.
Gage County Sheriff’s officers say it was a two-vehicle accident near Odell, at the junction of Nebraska Highways 8 and 112.
Authorities say 37-year-old Giesic Centeno Lanza of Beatrice was driving a pickup towing an enclosed trailer and turned onto Nebraska Highway 8 in front of another vehicle.
The westbound Dodge pickup on Highway 8 was driven by 18-year-old Tristan Rosebaugh of Wymore. Authorities say Rosebaugh attempted to stop but his truck hit the trailer being towed by the other vehicle.
Beatrice Fire and Rescue transported Rosebaugh to Beatrice Community Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Centeno Lanza was uninjured. He was ticketed by sheriffs’ officers for failure to yield and having no operator’s license.
