NE Woman Dies After Being Struck by Four-Wheeler

atv-accidentPolice say a 76-year-old woman has died after being hit by a four-wheeler.

Jeanette Peters of rural Ericson died Friday after she was struck by a four-wheeler operated by her husband. He was trying to move the vehicle up a ramp when he accelerated instead of braking, causing the four-wheeler to pin his wife against a building.

Peters was flown to a Kearney hospital, where she later died.

A funeral is planned for Tuesday at Bethel Baptist Church in Ord.
