One injured in another highway curve accident, south of Beatrice
BEATRICE - Gage County law officers investigated the second accident in recent weeks on a highway curve in southern Gage County. It happened Friday just before seven p.m., at the intersection of U.S. Highway 77 and Nebraska Highway 112, south of Beatrice.
29-year-old Dakota Voight from Wymore was traveling south on U.S. 77, rounding a curve, when 27-year-old Jacob Baker, from Missouri, attempted to turn left from a stop sign on 112 onto 77, and pulled out in front of Voight’s vehicle. The two collided.
Voight was taken to Bryan West Health Center in Lincoln for treatment of injuries. Baker told authorities he was not injured and declined transport for treatment.
Authorities say Baker was ticketed for failure to yield. Both drivers were using safety restraints and airbags deployed during the accident.
