Lincoln Police say that a 76-year-old woman died four days after a pickup truck slammed into her car.

Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said Maurine Mumma of Lincoln died Sunday morning. She was involved in a crash in south Lincoln last Wednesday.

Mumma tried to make a left turn across Nebraska Highway 2 at 40th Street on Wednesday afternoon. The westbound truck driven by 41-year-old Cleon Finnell, of Raymond, tried to stop but couldn't. No citations were issued.

Mumma suffered a catastrophic brain injury in the wreck.

Mumma's 16-year-old granddaughter, Amber Nieman, was also hurt in the crash. Nieman remained hospitalized Monday, but she was recovering.

Finnell was treated and released from the hospital last week.
