Keith county crash kills two, identities now available

Ogallala, Neb. — An accident on Interstate 80 west of Ogallala has claimed two lives.

The crash occurred just after 8:30 p.m. Thursday,  five miles west of Ogallala, when an eastbound  Toyota Tacoma pick-up crossed the median and collided head-on with a westbound Dodge pick-up.

The driver of the Dodge has been identified as Aaron James Davis, 38, of Greeley, Colorado. Davis was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Toyota pick-up was Kent T. Brakken, 71, of Cedaredge,  Colorado. Brakken was transported to Ogallala Community Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Investigators have determined that seat belts were used in both vehicles. Westbound lanes of I-80 were closed  for approximately 3.5 hours while NSP troopers conducted their investigation.
