LOCATION: West Hickory Road / Southwest 117th Road
OFFENSE: Injury Accident
CASE #: 2021-4793
On Wednesday, November 15, 2021, at approximately 11:11 am the Gage County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a rollover accident on West Hickory Road and Southwest 117th Road. An investigation at the scene determined that 36-year-old Jennifer VonMinden of Beatrice was driving a white 2005 Pontiac Grand GT eastbound on West Hickory Road when a vehicle driving westbound appeared to her to be too close to the center of the roadway so she swerved to the right, causing her to be pulled into a ditch, then overcorrecting to the left, sliding across the road, and rolling onto the passenger side.
VonMinden and her 19-year-old passenger were not wearing seatbelts and both received minor injuries when the vehicle flipped onto the passenger side. Jennifer VonMinden was transported to Beatrice Community Hospital by the Beatrice Fire and Rescue ambulance. The passenger refused medical transport and was released to an adult relative who came to the scene.
No seatbelts were worn by the driver or passenger. Neither speed nor alcohol are considered to be a factor in the accident.
