Holdrege accident claims two lives, hospitalizes child

HOLDREGE, Neb. - Two drivers are dead and a child is injured after a head-on crash in central Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a westbound pickup truck was westbound on Highway 6 near Holdrege Tuesday morning when it crossed the center line and struck an eastbound minivan.


Dylan Skeen, 29, of Holdrege was alone in the pick-up truck, according to the report filed by the State Patrol. He was transported and later pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.

Kerri Bernstrauch, 36, also of Holdrege, was driving the van and was pronounced dead at the scene. A child in the passenger seat was transported to the hospital in Kearney then later flown to Omaha for further treatment of serious injuries.


Bernstrauch and the child were both wearing seatbelts, but Skeen was not, NSP officials said.

The crash remains under investigation.
