– 66-year-old South Sioux City resident (killed) – Unidentified good Samaritan (injured) : “Good Samaritan Killed in Multi-Vehicle Crash on Interstate in Nebraska”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Dakota City, Nebraska – Tragedy struck on Wednesday morning as a series of accidents unfolded on Interstate 129 in northeast Nebraska, leading to the loss of a precious life. The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office swiftly responded to the initial collision at approximately 5 a.m.

The crash, occurring in the eastbound lanes, involved a stolen 2008 Toyota Camry from South Sioux City, Nebraska, according to the sheriff’s office. The ill-fated Camry, traveling eastbound on I-129, collided with the center median barricade, shattering the tranquility of the morning.

In a heartening display of humanity, two good Samaritans halted their journey to extend help to the Camry’s driver. However, their noble act was met with a cruel twist of fate. Another vehicle, also traveling eastbound, rammed into the already wrecked Camry and the two Samaritans, propelling them into a third car parked on the interstate’s shoulder. Tragically, one of these selfless Samaritans, a 66-year-old resident of South Sioux City, lost their life, while the other sustained injuries.

Both the surviving Samaritan and the driver of the second vehicle were expeditiously transported to a local hospital for medical attention. Their injuries, though significant, are being addressed by medical professionals.

Meanwhile, the driver of the stolen Camry, displaying a flagrant disregard for human life, fled the scene. Law enforcement agencies are diligently searching for this individual, identified only as a male, as they remain at large. Physical descriptions of the fugitive are currently unavailable.

Shortly after the eastbound collision, a separate accident occurred in the westbound lanes of I-129. Fortunately, no severe injuries were reported in this incident. However, the occurrence of both accidents necessitated the temporary closure of both eastbound and westbound lanes between the Dakota Avenue exit and the Missouri River.

Authorities urge anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the stolen vehicle’s driver to promptly contact the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office. Together, we can help bring justice to those affected by this tragic series of events and ensure that the perpetrator is held accountable for their actions.
