(Hamburg) The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an accident in Hamburg that left a woman seriously injured.
According to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office 20-year-old Marissa Ann Robinson was southbound on Main Street just south of the Washington Street intersection, when she lost control of her vehicle. The 2002 Chevrolet Cavelier left the road on the east side of the road, causing her vehicle to roll several times coming to rest near the railroad tracks, adjacent to the road. Robinson was ejected from the car. She was transported by Hamburg Rescue to Grape Community Hospital and later air-lifted to the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railway of a possible car vs. train accident, near the intersection of Main and Washington Streets at around 2:08 Saturday morning. When they arrived it was determined that the train was not involved in the accident. BNSF employees advised that a white pickup truck was parked near the accident scene, and when they approached the pickup left the scene.
Authorities believe alcohol and speed are believed to be factors. Seatbelts were not in use. The accident remains under investigation by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone with information about the case, or any information on any possible witnesses, please contact the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office at 712-374-2424.
