Louisville Rescue Squad transported an Omaha man to an Omaha hospital Feb. 2 after he was involved in an accident on Highway 50 about one mile north of Waverly.
Keith Edmonds, 73, was driving his silver 2001 Chrysler Town and Country van north on Highway 50 when he crossed the centerline.
Marco Rivera, 31, was driving a 2014 Peterbuilt semi towing a pup trailer when he saw Edmonds cross the center line. Rivera swerved to the right to avoid a head-on collision. Edmonds van struck the driver’s side rear duel drive wheels, and the vehicle launched to the right, leaving the road and traveling into the tree line in an embankment.
Edmonds was transported to the hospital with possible neck and back injuries. Rivera was uninjured.
Edmonds received a citation for driving left of center.
