ambulanceLincoln Police say that a 76-year-old woman died four days after a pickup truck slammed into her car.

Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said Monday that Maurine Mumma of Lincoln died Sunday morning. She was involved in an accident in south Lincoln last Wednesday.

Mumma tried to make a left turn across Nebraska Highway 2 at 40th Street on Wednesday afternoon. The westbound truck driven by 41-year-old Cleon Finnell, of Raymond, tried to stop but couldn’t. No citations were issued.

Mumma suffered a catastrophic brain injury in the wreck.

Mumma’s 16-year-old granddaughter, Amber Nieman, was also hurt in the crash. Nieman remained hospitalized Monday, but she was recovering.

Finnell was treated and released from the hospital last week.
