Officials: Man died after 2-vehicle crash near Burwell

August 6, 2019

BURWELL, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a 75-year-old York man has died from injuries he received earlier this week in a two-vehicle crash in north-central Nebraska.

The Grand Island Independent reports that Dennis Neville died Monday in a Lincoln hospital, a day after the crash.

The Garfield County Attorney’s office says Neville was driving a utility vehicle on Highway 11 on Sunday afternoon when he was overtaken and hit by another vehicle driven by 83-year-old Wanda Mueller, of Scottsbluff. Police say Mueller was driving a pilot vehicle that was escorting a wide-load commercial truck.

Mueller was cited at the scene for reckless driving, and officials say additional charges may be filed.
