One person is dead following a three vehicle collision Tuesday afternoon near Emerson, Nebraska.
The Dakota County Sheriff says 21 year old Michael Schmidt of Pender died when his vehicle sideswiped a van, spun out of control on rain soaked Highway 35 and was struck by a third vehicle coming from the opposite direction.
The driver of the third vehicle was taken to Unity Point St. Luke’s Medical Center with injuries sustained in the collision.
That victim’s identity has not been released.
The accident happened just before 12:30pm and remains under investigation by the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol.
