      BASSETT, Neb. (AP) -- A Bassett woman has died in a single-vehicle crash in central Nebraska.

      Rock County Sheriff James Anderson said 27-year-old Claudia Koenig died in the Monday morning crash.

      Anderson says Koenig was driving northbound on U.S. Highway 183 about 25 miles south of Bassett when her Jeep went into a ditch, veered back across the highway and rolled several times.

      Anderson says Koenig was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the Jeep. She died at the scene.

      Anderson says investigators believe speed played a factor in the crash.
