BEATRICE – Gage County Sheriff’s deputies investigated a three-vehicle accident just west of Clatonia, Sunday at around five p.m.
Authorities say a pickup driven by 28-year-old Jack Bursovsky, of Filley was eastbound on Nebraska Highway 41, slowing to turn north on Southwest 114th Road.
38-year-old Patrick Brestel of Lincoln was following in a pickup, and 43-year-old Amy Rezny, of Wilber was driving a van behind Brestel.
Investigators determined that Rezny failed to slow down, and struck the pickup in front of her, then struck the pickup driven by Bursovsky.
Rezny suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was flown by medical helicopter to Bryan LGH West, in Lincoln. Passengers in the van and a passenger in one of the pickups, were not injured.
Deputies say all occupants were using seat belts. Clatonia and Cortland Rescue units responded to the scene of the accident.
