Deputies Finally Locate Driver Involved in Crash

By  | 

Several Deputies spent several hours trying to piece together what happened with an abandoned vehicle involved in a crash.

Just before Midnight Saturday night, a Ceresco Police officer was flagged down about a possible accident in the area of 40th and Ashland Road. The officer found the damaged car with blood inside, which had been abandoned.

Lancaster County Sheriff's Sergeant John Vik said deputies worked several hours trying to locate the missing driver and verify his condition. Deputies scoured the area and could not find anyone.

Vik said the deputies were able to find damage on several county roads and backtrack to where the crash happened at 14th and Alvo Road, within the Lincoln City Limits.

According to Vik, the investigation led them to believe the vehicle was traveling north when it failed to negotiate the roundabout, left the road and rolled over, before landing on its wheels. The car was then driven from the crash.

Police were finally able to locate the driver in a residence in Ceresco. The driver had minor injuries from the crash and confirmed what deputies believed happened in the crash.

Vik said deputies were surprised the vehicle made it as far as it did, considering the damage.

The investigation is ongoing.
