Illinois woman, 27, dies after I-80 crash near Grand Island

A 27-year-old Illinois woman died Friday after she was ejected from a vehicle during a crash on Interstate 80 near Grand Island.

Allyssa Wiebel of Bartlett, Illinois, was a back-seat passenger in a westbound Honda sedan that crashed about 7:05 a.m., according to the Nebraska State Patrol.

The sedan drove into the ditch, at which point the driver over-corrected and drove over the on-ramp, which caused the vehicle to roll twice, the State Patrol said.

A trooper arrived at the scene to find a witness performing CPR on Wiebel, who had been ejected from the vehicle. She was not wearing a seat belt, authorities said.

The trooper helped with resuscitation efforts until paramedics arrived and took Wiebel to St. Francis Hospital in Grand Island. She was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The 20-year-old driver of the Honda, Tony Trujillo of Cicero, Illinois, and the front-seat passenger, an unidentified 18-year-old man from Illinois, were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Neither man was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

An investigation into the crash was ongoing Friday.
