CUMING COUNTY, Nebraska (KTIV) – Four people were taken to the hospital following a three-vehicle accident near West Point, Nebraska, on Thursday.
Forty-one-year-old Wade Miserez of West Point, 18-year-old Isabeau Pusch, of Omaha, 63-year-old Russell Davis, of Livingston, Texas, and 67-year-old Debra Davis were taken to area hospitals with injuries.
According to the Cuming County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened at 4:46 p.m. on Thursday at Highway 275 and 15th Road, two-and-a-half miles northwest of West Point.
The sheriff’s office says a vehicle was turning into the driveway for Cottonwood Chimes. A second vehicle slowed down when a third vehicle took the north shoulder of Highway 275, going around the two vehicles. That vehicle then returned to the roadway, clipping the front of one of the other vehicles before crossing the centerline of Highway 275 and colliding with another pickup.
Miserez’s vehicle came to a rest on the north shoulder of Highway 275, with Pusch’s vehicle on the westbound lane and the Davis’ vehicle with a trailer in the south shoulder of Highway 275.
The accident is under investigation by the Cuming County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol.
