An 83-year-old Silver Creek, Nebraska woman died after her SUV accelerated out of a truck stop car wash in Columbus.
The accident occurred around 8:40 a.m. Tuesday at the Sapp Bros. truck stop.
Police say Donna Wyman was going through the car wash in her sport utility vehicle when it suddenly accelerated, crashed through a fence and struck the side of a ditch.
Police Capt. Charles Sherer says investigators will be checking for any mechanical failure and whether Wyman suffered a medical problem that led to the accident. Platte County Attorney Carl Hart says there was no indication that Wyman had any medical issues.
