Florida Man Killed in Crash Near Elm Creek Over Weekend


A Florida man was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 80 near Elm Creek on Sunday.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 45-year-old Frank Schofield, of Pensacola, Fla., was driving a pickup eastbound on the interstate when it crossed the median and both lanes of westbound traffic a few miles east of the Elm Creek exit.

The pickup rolled and Schofield, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle. He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, where he was pronounced dead.
