Young Friend Boy Dies In Saline County Wreck
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that a 6-year-old boy from Friend died and several people were injured Thursday after a car and an SUV collided in rural Friend, the Saline County Sheriff's Office said Friday.
This marks the second deadly accident in Saline County in the past week.
Beckett Arp was a passenger in a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville that was onto U.S. 6 from a county road just before 3:45 p.m. The car was hit by an eastbound 2003 Dodge Durango, Sheriff Alan Moore said in a news release.
The Bonneville had two passengers, and the driver was the only one in the Durango.
Everyone was taken to the hospital in Friend, and Beckett then was flown to Bryan West Campus in Lincoln.
The crash remains under investigation.
