Norfolk teen hospitalized after rollover accident

WOODLAND PARK, Neb. -- A Wednesday night rollover accident sent a Norfolk teen to the hospital.

Just before 11:00 Wednesday night, an SUV driven by 19-year-old Isiah Ames, of rural Hoskins, left the road after Ames lost control of the vehicle while turning from 844th Road to 562nd Avenue, northeast of Woodland Park. According to the Stanton County Sheriff's Office, the SUV entered the ditch and rolled.

Ames and two other teenage passengers were treated at the scene by Hoskins/Woodland Park Rescue, and a 16-year-old female passenger was transported to Faith Regional Hospital for treatment.

The sheriff's office says speed was a contributing factor, and Ames was cited for reckless driving.

Authorities say seatbelts were not in use, and the vehicle is considered a total loss.
