Omaha Man Injured In Early Morning Accident on Hwy 15

At about 7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning the Stanton County Sheriff’s office was notified of a one vehicle rollover injury accident near the intersection of Hwy 15 and 834th Road about six miles South of Pilger.  The accident occurred when a northbound car driven by a 41 year old Omaha man left Hwy 15 and entered the steep east ditch striking a creek bed and rolling.  The lone occupant was found outside the vehicle by a passerby and it is unclear when the accident occurred or if the driver was ejected.  Seatbelts did not appear to be in use and the driver was stabilized on scene by Pilger Fire and Rescue and then transported from the scene by LifeNet medical helicopter to a Sioux City, IA trauma center.  The accident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s office.
