As Kay Farwell attempted to turn east onto Nebraska 8 from the southbound lanes of U.S. 77, her vehicle struck a 2005 Mercury Mountaineer, driven by Alice Bryan, which was northbound on U.S. 77.

Bryan's injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Seat belts were in use in both vehicles. Neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to be a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
