Crash In Southern Sheridan County Claims Alliance Man

      The Nebraska State Patrol says an Alliance man was killed Thursday morning in a head-on collision in extreme southern Sheridan County. 40-year old Grant Mann was pronounced dead on arrival at Box Butte General Hospital in Alliance.

       State Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas says the crash occurred about 7:15 am on Hwy 2 near Ellsworth. 

        Thomas says the preliminary investigation shows Mann was eastbound when his pickup crossed the center line and hit another pickup going west. 

     While Mann was taken to Box Butte General, the other driver – a minor whose name has not been released – was transported to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff with serious injuries.

      Thomas says both men were alone in their pickups and were wearing seat belts. The accident remains under investigation.
