One person was injured in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 77 at the Diamond-T Truck Plaza north of Beatrice on Friday morning.
At around 6:45 a.m., the Gage County Sheriff’s Office and Beatrice Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the two-vehicle injury accident at the north entrance of the Diamond-T Truck Plaza.
According to a press release, the crash investigation revealed that a 2018 Freightliner, driven by Marlin Slobodan, 55, of Kitchener, Ontario, had stopped at the stop sign leaving the Diamond-T Truck Plaza, then proceeded to turn south onto U.S. Highway 77, failing to yield to a northbound 2000 Ford Focus driven by Joshua Shepardson, 28, of Wymore.
Shepardson was transported to the Beatrice Community Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while Slobodan reported no injuries.
Neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to have been a factor in the crash.
