Scribner, NE (June 10, 2021) The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating a crash that claimed the lives of four people this morning on Highway 275 near Scribner.
The crash occurred at approximately 9:45 a.m. Thursday just east of Scribner on Highway 275, involving a passenger vehicle and a semi. Two adults and one child passed away at the scene. A second child was transported to the hospital in Fremont where the child passed away. All four fatalities were from the passenger vehicle.
After preliminary investigation, investigators believe a southbound Pontiac sedan attempted to pass another vehicle on the two-lane portion of Highway 275, lost control, and struck a northbound semi in the northbound lane.
The four occupants of the Pontiac were a family from Fremont. The driver, Heidi Lykens-Huisman, 37, and passengers, Joshua Huisman, 29, and Jaymasin Lykens, 10, were all pronounced deceased at the scene. The fourth occupant, Nova Huisman, 9 months old, was transported by Scribner Rescue to the hospital in Fremont and later passed away.
During the investigation, Highway 275 was closed in the area. It was re-opened Thursday evening.
