Teen Dies In Hall County Accident

DONIPHAN- On Tuesday, at 5:42 p.m. Hall County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an accident on Interstate 80 near mile marker 295 westbound.

A preliminary investigation indicates a pickup, driven by 24-year-old Brody Weinmann, of Falls City, was stopped in the westbound passing lane due to backed up traffic ahead of him. A car, driven by 17-year-old Carley Johnson of Doniphan, failed to stop and collided with the rear of Weinmann’s vehicle. Johnson, who was the lone occupant of the car, died at the scene. Weinmann and his passenger, 22-year-old Payton Strahm of Sabetha, Kansas, were uninjured. According to police, traffic was slowed due to a HAZMAT cleanup from an earlier rollover accident, which was off the roadway.

The incident remains under investigation.
