NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - First responders caught word at 12:01 p.m ., Sunday of a two-car collision at E and Jeffers in North Platte. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage. There were no serious injuries.
Officials say one car ran a red light before striking the other. Medical personnel was called to help those involved but no one was taken to the hospital.
Debris littered the roadway as the NPPD and Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies needed to guide traffic for nearly an hour as the cars were towed away and the wreckage cleaned off the street.
Officers want to remind everyone to remain focused behind the wheel as the summer months come around.
“We just want to make sure everyone’s safe on our roads here in North Platte and tell everyone to pay attention,” said NPPD officer Jay Meduna. “Slow down. With school getting out, there’s going to be a lot of young drivers. Just take your time. Pay attention to the stoplights and street signs. Hopefully, everyone gets to where they’re going safely.”
