LINCOLN — Two men are dead and another hospitalized after a one-car crash near Lincoln, authorities said.
The crash happened just before 6:30 a.m. Saturday on a county road near Branched Oak Lake north of Lincoln, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators said the car was westbound when it left the road and rolled several times.
Two passengers in the car — Chad Spencer and Ryan Bostock, both 24 and from Lincoln — were found dead at the scene of the crash.
The driver, Joshua Fagan, 24, of Lincoln, was flown to a Lincoln hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
The Sheriff's Office said no arrests had been made as of Saturday, but that speed and alcohol use are believed to have contributed to the crash.
