Gretna, NE (January 25, 2021) – Two people have lost their lives following a motor vehicle accident in Sarpy County on Saturday afternoon. On January 23, emergency crews were called to the scene of an accident on Interstate 80.
Reports from authorities show that a GMC Envoy was traveling east on the highway when it collided with a semi-truck near mile marker 434.
The driver of the Envoy, who was identified as 30-year-old David Hardy, Jr., and his passenger, 30-year-old Sabrina Reynolds, were both killed instantly in the accident. Authorities declared both victims deceased at the scene.
A passenger in the back seat of the Envoy, 26-year-old Tanjeneia Bass, was severely injured. Firefighters had to extricate the injured woman before rushing her to Bergan Mercy for the treatment of critical injuries. The driver of the semi-truck, 50-year-old Rocky Archambeau, was not injured in the accident.
At this time, the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of David Hardy, Jr. and Sabrina Reynolds.
Our thoughts are with Tanjeneia Bass at this time.
Fatal Truck Accidents in Nebraska
Being involved in an auto accident can have a detrimental impact on the lives of those involved. Victims who suffer catastrophic injuries require extensive medical treatment, hospitalization, and therapy. The chances of being severely injured are significantly increased when semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles are involved. Unfortunately, families throughout our state are forced to endure the overwhelming consequences of these unimaginable and preventable accidents every day in our state. More than 215 people lose their lives in auto accidents across Nebraska each year. Many victims lose their lives in accidents involving semi-trucks. The massive size of these vehicles increases the chances of fatal injuries for victims, especially those inside smaller vehicles during collisions. These accidents leave families to deal with overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences after losing their loved ones unexpectedly.
