Ceresco Man Dies in Rollover Crash

By  | 

Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is investigating a rollover crash which killed a 55-year-old Ceresco man.

Just before 10:30 Friday night, a passerby called 911 to report an accident just south of 162nd & Agnew Road.

Sergeant John Vik said when emergency crews arrived, they found a 2001 Ford Windstar in a field and a single occupant laying nearby.

The occupant was Daniel (Danny) Benkusky of Ceresco.

According to Vik, the van was traveling northbound when it lost control and went into the east ditch before rolling over.

Benkusky was ejected while the van rolled over, ending up several feet from away. No seat belt was in use.

Vik said the investigation leads them to suspect alcohol may have played a factor in the crash but they are still investigating the cause.
