The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Frontier County Sheriff’s Office, is investigating a fatality accident in southern Dawson County.    Around 3:00am Saturday morning, a passerby came upon the scene of a one vehicle rollover accident that occurred about 9 miles south of Cozad on Highway 21.

Dawson Count Sheriff Ken Moody says the investigation indicates that the driver, 20 year old Juan A. Baeza of Maywood, Nebraska, had been traveling southbound on South Hwy 21. Mr. Baeza’s 2001 Dodge Ram pickup crossed the centerline and left the Highway and rolled multiple times before coming to rest back onto the roadway landing on it’s side. Mr. Baeza was ejected and was transported to the Cozad Community Hospital by the Eustis Volunteer Fire & Rescue department. Mr. Baeza later died as a result of his injuries he sustained from the accident. There were no other occupants or vehicles involved in the accident,

. Preliminary indications revealed that speed may be a contributing factor to the crash. No restraints were used.
