Sheridan Man Faces Possible Charges Following Fatal Crash

A man from Sheridan is facing possible charges following a crash over the weekend in Nebraska that killed one woman and injured another.

The Associated Press reports that 45-year-old Edward Hood was arrested Saturday afternoon, after the crash, according to the Nebraska State Patrol, and is suspected of driving under the influence.

He is also accused of failing to appear for a court hearing on a similar charge in Florida.

Authorities say Hood's vehicle crossed the center line of U.S. Highway 26 and struck another vehicle about five miles west of Oshkosh.

The driver of the other vehicle was the person killed, identified as 62-year-old Terry Hofer of Ogallala. The injured person was her passenger, 62-year-old Claudia Weinbender of Dix. She was hospitalized in Scottsbluff with life-threatening injuries. No update on her condition has been released.
