Four people were injured in two separate accidents Friday and Saturday, according to the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office.
The first crash was reported at 9:30 a.m. Friday. Brian Joy, of Humboldt, was northbound on Highway 75 in his 1997 Ford pickup when a southbound 2013 Chevrolet pickup, driven by John Sierks of Brownville, attempted to turn east on 731 Road, causing a collision.
Officials say both drivers were transported to Nemaha County Hospital with minor injuries. There were no passengers.
Meanwhile, a 911 call reported a single vehicle accident west of Auburn on 728 Road at 1:20 a.m. Saturday.
Matthew Williams, of Johnson, lost control of a 2006 Saturn Vue and the vehicle rolled before resting in a nearby ditch. The passenger, Shyann McRoberts (Talmage), was ejected from the vehicle. Both were transported to Nemaha County Hospital by Auburn Rescue and later transferred to a Lincoln hospital.
According to a news release from the sheriff’s office, McRoberts was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident.
