Rural collision sends two to local hospital

A 56-year-old woman, and a Lincoln man, ended up at Gothenburg Memorial Hospital the evening of March 13, following a collision at a rural intersection.

Cynthia Clark, and Colin Keefe, 63, were transported to the hospital by the Gothenburg Volunteer Fire Department rescue squad.

Dawson County sheriff deputy Rick Crown, who investigated the accident, said in his report that Clark had broken ribs and Keefe complained of pain in his left side.

Shortly before the accident, Crown said Keefe was northbound on Highway 47, in a 2006 Toyota Prius, and Clark was driving east on Road 764 (Banner Road) in a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero.

At about 9:45 p.m., he said Clark failed to stop at the stop sign before pulling onto to Highway 47. Her vehicle struck Keefe’s car on the driver’s side and both vehicles then traveled into the east ditch.

The report said both vehicles were totalled and that the drivers were wearing seat belts.
