Korey Elizabeth Huebner, 24, died early Monday morning from injuries in a deadly wreck at a county road intersection north of Sutherland. Huebner was one of three people in a pickup that failed to make a turn at the intersection of Platte Valley and Prairie Trace roads, a mile north of Sutherland. The wreck happened a few minutes after midnight, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff's statement.
The 1996 Ford F-250 pickup was driving west on Platte Valley Road. It went through the three-way intersection into the dirt bank of the west ditch of Prairie Trace Road.
Alcohol is believed to be involved in the accident and seatbelts were not in use, the sheriff's report said.
Two men in the pickup were injured -- Micah B. Koch, 24, and Jay D. Shotkoski, 28, both of Hershey.
All three victims were initially taken to Great Plains Regional Medical Center for injuries. From there, Huebner was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, according to the sheriff's office.
Lincoln County Sheriff's Office was informed around 7 a.m. that Huebner died as a result of her injuries.
Huebner was a 2012 nursing graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center. In 2007, she was honored with the Ak-Sar-Ben Horatio Alger award as a graduating senior of Hershey High School.
