PLATTSMOUTH – A Weeping Water teen was in fair condition on Tuesday morning at an Omaha hospital from a one-vehicle rollover accident on the afternoon of Sept. 3.

According to Cass County Sheriff William Brueggemann, Kyle D. Baxter, 16, was traveling north on 120th Street by Mckelvie Road in a 2001 Nissan Xterra when he lost control of the vehicle on the gravel road. It rolled several times before ending up in a bean field on the east side of the road.

Baxter was ejected from the vehicle and transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center by Weeping Water Rescue personnel. He was listed in critical condition as of last Friday, a hospital spokesperson said at that time.
