Five people involved in high-speed rollover accident; three remain hospitalized

An early morning rollover accident north of Scottsbluff kept first responders busy until nearly dawn Saturday, as high speeds result in a rollover accident.

Authorities were dispatched to the injury accident near the intersection of Sugar Factory Road and County Road C. When they arrived, they found a blue sedan that had rolled, and at least two of the five people were ejected from the vehicle.

Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman says the driver, 22-year-old Zachary Adams of Scottsbluff, was driving at a high rate of speed and lost control of the vehicle.  The vehicle slid sideways and rolled a number of times through a ditch, across a driveway, and through a fence, eventually coming to rest in a field on its side.

Three of the five occupants were ejected, one was trapped inside the back seat, and one was able to get out of the vehicle on his own.

Adams was ejected from the vehicle and transported to RWMC by Valley Ambulance, his condition was reported as stable.

20-year-old Jordan Emrick was not ejected from the vehicle.  He was transported to RWMC, treated and released.

29-year-old Joseph Montoya was ejected, airlifted to Regional West and was listed as critical.

22-year-old Hannah Delcamp of Torrington was trapped in the back seat and freed by responding Deputies.  She was transported to RWMC by Valley Ambulance and is listed in fair condition.

20-year-old Elysabeth Dally was also ejected, transported  to the hospital and she was reported as critical.

Deputies issued Zachery Adams a citation charging him with Driving Under the Influence, Driving Under Suspension, Willful Reckless Driving, and Possession of an Open Alcohol Container.

AirLink and Valley Ambulance responded to the scene as well.
