LifeNet transports man from old Highway 2 accident

NEBRASKA CITY -  A Dunbar man was taken by LifeNet Helicopter from an accident scene on old Highway 2 west of Nebraska City on Wednesday morning.

The Otoe County Sheriff Office is investigating the crash that involved a southbound hydrovac excavating truck and an eastbound Chrysler LeBaron.

The truck, driven by 47-year-old Christopher Barnes of Ashland,  appears to have pulled away from a stop sign on 52nd Road and onto I road in the path of the convertible. The Dunbar man, 58-year-old Richard Sitzman, left skid marks in his lane, but could not stop before hitting the side of the truck.

He was taken by medical helicopter to Bergan Mercy Hospital with serious injuries.
