Alcohol believed to be factor in rural Seward County crash

GARLAND – On Sunday at approximately 8:30 p.m. the Seward County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single vehicle rollover accident near 168th Road & Raymond Road, approximately two miles east of Garland.

The vehicle was believed to be traveling southbound when it lost control and entered the west ditch. The vehicle then overturned before coming to rest upside down near a creek bottom.

The driver, 45-year-old Amy Oltman of Lincoln and the passenger, 45-year-old Matthew Cornish also of Lincoln were pinned inside the 2001 Chevy Malibu. Garland Fire Rescue and Malcolm Fire rescue used Jaws of Life to extract the two subjects from the overturned vehicle. Cornish was airlifted by Star Care to BLGH West. Oltman was also transported to BLGH West by Garland Rescue Squad.

Oltman is listed as stable and Cornish is listed as serious, but stable. Seward County Sheriff’s Office believes alcohol may have been a contributing factor to the crash.
