An Omaha ma was lifeflighted to a Sioux City hospital following a one-vehicle accident south of Pilger Saturday morning.
At about 7 a.m. on Saturday morning, the Stanton County Sheriff’s office was notified of a one-vehicle rollover injury accident near the intersection of Highway 15 and 834th Road about six miles South of Pilger.
The accident occurred when a northbound car driven by a 41-year-old Omaha man left Highway 15 and entered the steep east ditch striking a creek bed and rolling. The lone occupant was found outside the vehicle by a passerby and it is unclear when the accident occurred or if the driver was ejected.
Seatbelts did not appear to be in use and the driver was stabilized on scene by Pilger Fire and Rescue and then transported from the scene by LifeNet medical helicopter to a Sioux City, IA trauma center. The accident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s office.
