LINCOLN, Nebraska – Six individuals have died as a consequence of a single-car accident described by Lincoln Police as the deadliest in the city’s recent history.
It occurred around 2 a.m. in a residential neighborhood close to 56th and Randolph.
The police reacted to a 911 call from an iPhone’s automated emergency response system suggesting that the phone’s owner was involved in a major collision and was unresponsive to the phone.
When cops arrived, they discovered a vehicle that had apparently been going east when it had crashed. Initial reports indicate that the vehicle collided with a tree in a yard on Randolph Street.
Five men in their twenties were discovered dead in the vehicle. The five males were the driver, who was 26 years old, a 23-year-old, two 22-year-olds, and a 21-year-old.
A 24-year-old lady, the sixth victim of the collision, was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
The identity of the six victims have not been made public pending notification of their families.
