A woman tells crash investigators that she blacked out while traveling in southeast Nebraska late Tuesday night. After crashing into a cornfield, she called 911 not sure of her location.
Thankfully for 26-year old Emma Goracke, 911 technology saved the day. Cass County Sheriff William C. Brueggemann says 911 dispatchers were able to determine she was in the area just east of 238th Street and on the south side of Highway 34.
The incident was reported at 10:54 p.m. east of Eagle. Goracke’s Subaru Outback traveled through a ditch and some bushes and came to rest about 150 feet into a cornfield.
Airbags were not deployed. Goracke was wearing her seatbelt. She was taken to a Lincoln hospital as a precaution.
