Lexington, Neb. — A one-vehicle rollover crash that occurred early Sunday near a rural Lexington intersection resulted in a fatality.
The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office in Lexington says authorities were alerted of the accident at 12:36 a.m. The driver of a 2000 Ford pickup was eastbound on Road 753 when he lost control due to excessive speed on a washboard road shortly before reaching the intersection with Road 436.
The vehicle entered the south ditch, then slid across the road into the north ditch and rolled, ejecting the driver. The crash site was approximately 2 & 1/2 miles south of Lexington.
The driver was identified as 38 year old Victor Castillo-Pupo who has a Grand Island address, but owns property in the Lexington area. Castillo-Pupo was pronounced dead at the scene.
