Highway 34 pursuit ends in accident

PLATTSMOUTH – The Cass County Sheriff’s Office reports a pursuit that ended in a Highway 34 accident and driving under the influence arrest.

A sheriff’s office press release says deputies received complaints of a BMW being driven erratically and attempted a traffic stop Saturday morning.

The press release says the BMW ran from the traffic stop on 226th Street and traveled east on Highway 34 at a high rate of speed and passing in no passing zones.

The BMW struck a Lincoln MRX Reserve and came to rest in the south ditch near Eagle.

Dean Cummings, who was treated at the scene by Eagle Rescue, is suspected of flight to avoid arrest, DUI, refusing test and driving under revocation. The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating the accident.
