Wood River, Neb. — The Hall County Sheriff’s Office has identified the victim in a fatal crash as 33 year old Renee Kersting of Sumner, Nebraska.

Hall County Sheriff Rick Conrad says the semi had stopped in the eastbound lanes because of construction.

Kersting was traveling in the SUV.   Three juveniles were transported to the hospital.
