LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — An 88-year-old Nebraska woman died after her speeding minivan smashed into a pickup truck leaving a driveway.

Lincoln Police Capt. Jim Davidsaver said that a medical problem may have contributed to the crash that killed Flossie Bonnell.

Davidsaver says Bonnell sideswiped a car and sped north on 70th Street at a high speed before hitting the truck as it pulled out of Lincoln East High’s parking lot.

Witnesses told police the van may have been driving as fast as 60 mph beforehand.

The two people in the truck were injured, but were expected to be OK.
