Sheriff suspects drunk driver caused Highway 75 crash
NEBRASKA CITY – An Otoe County sheriff’s office report says a drunk driver was responsible for a Highway 75 accident north of Nebraska City shortly after 10 p.m. on Saturday.
The report says a southbound Honda Accord driven by Jeremy Lee Booher of Omaha crossed the centerline and collided with a northbound Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Taylor Jones of Nehawka.
Jones took evasive action by switching to the right hand lane, but sustained and estimated $15,000 damage to the driver’s side from the front beyond the driver’s door.
The Honda came to a stop a hundred yards south of the collision. It is also listed as totaled.
The accident report says Booher’s erratic driving had prompted an earlier 911 call and a report from Cass County.
No injuries were reported.
