One woman died and four other people were seriously injured in a four-vehicle crash Sunday just south of Fremont.
The crash occurred about 1:30 p.m. on U.S. 77 between Nebraska 109 and the Platte River bridge, according to the Saunders County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators determined that a 2020 Mazda was northbound on U.S. 77 and a 2006 Kia Sorento was southbound. Both vehicles "drifted toward the center of the roadway" and collided, the Sheriff's Office said.
The collision caused the Mazda to veer into the southbound lanes and cause a secondary collision with a southbound 2012 Kia Forte. In addition, the Sorento veered into the northbound lane and collided with a 2017 Ford F-250 pickup truck.
A woman in the Mazda and two occupants of the Sorento were flown by medical helicopter to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, where the woman who was in the Mazda died from her injuries.
