Lawnmower Accident Victim Succumbs to Injuries

A Kearney woman has died from the severe burns she received in a lawnmower accident last month.

Terrie Moreau, 56, of rural Kearney, died Thursday at St. Elizabeth's Burn Center in Lincoln, where she was taken after the accident.

Investigators say on June 30th, Moreau was driving a riding lawn mower that went out of control, flipped and pinned her underneath the mower, then caught fire.

Services will be Wednesday morning at O'Brien Straatmann Redinger Funeral Home in Kearney.
