(Neb.)-Monday Morning Accident Sends One To Hospital
(Chadron)-Several nice days recently in the listening area have given people a case of spring fever, but Mother Nature has shown she isn’t quite ready to let go of winter just yet. Weekend temperatures in the Panhandle were in the 60s, but snow and rain on Sunday evening, and freezing temperatures into the morning, caused an accident south of Chadron that sent one to the hospital.
According to a report from the Nebraska State Patrol, 24-year-old Ryan Scott from Scottsbluff was northbound on Highway 385 approximately 7 miles south of Chadron State Park on Monday morning when he hit a patch of ice and rolled his vehicle. The 1995 Ford Explorer went into the west ditch where it rolled. Scott was not wearing a seat belt. The Patrol said they consider the vehicle to be a total loss. Scott was transported to Chadron Community Hospital with unknown injuries.
The incident occurred at approximately 8:20 that morning. Other drivers in the area reported a sheet of ice on the road, more specifically near the Table area south of Chadron. Temperatures throughout the week will begin to drop after Wednesday, with highs expected around 50, but also a chance of rain, and then temperatures will decline to the 30s through the weekend. Wind is expected today (Tuesday) and Thursday as well.
