Rollover Crash Being Investigated


Kearney County officials are investigating a rollover crash that injured an Axtell teen Saturday.

It happened around 1:00 p.m. just south of the intersection of 22 and N Roads.

The Kearney County Sheriff’s Office said a 17-year-old was driving north on 22 Road when he lost control of his car, entered the east ditch and rolled two times before coming to rest in a field.

The driver was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. He was the only person in the vehicle.

Authorities said he was not wearing a seat belt.
