A 91-year-old North Platte woman died Sunday in a fatal crash in Interstate-80 about a half mile west of North Platte. Emma Darnel was driving west when she tried to make a U-turn on the highway and go back east. She was hit by a westbound pickup pulling a tall camper.
The wreck occurred at 12:47 p.m., the Nebraska State Patrol said.
Darnelís car was knocked into the median and she was killed.
The pickup was driven by Steven Marcone, 54, of Maryland. Marcone and his wife Roberta were transported to Great Plains Regional Medical Center, treated and released.
