fatal-accident(AP) — A 22-year-old Gibbon man has been killed and three other people have been injured in a south-central Nebraska traffic accident.

The Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred around 8:20 p.m. Monday about a mile southwest of Gibbon.

The office says 20-year-old Darienne Newman, of Axtell, was driving with three people when she lost control of her car. It went into a ditch and rolled.

Newman and two passengers were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. The sheriff’s office says passenger Steven Kautz was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash is being investigated.
