The Dawson County Attorney’s Office has filed three charges of felony Motor Vehicle Homicide against a 20-year-old Kearney woman. Angelique Kampmann is also charged with Driving Under the Influence while causing Bodily Injury and Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. It stems from a two-vehicle crash about two miles east of Overton on Highway 30 that occured around 2:00am on October 16, 2018.
According to the Nebraska State Patrol a car, driven by Kampmann, was traveling southbound when it failed to stop at the intersection and struck another vehicle. Three passengers in Kampmann’s vehicle were all pronounced dead at the scene. They included Donald Anderson, 20, of Overton, Karli Michael, 27 of Pontiac, Illinois, and Ziera Nickerson, 18, of Kearney. Kampmann, 20 of Elm Creek, and another passenger, Ashley Kemp, 18, of Kearney, were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.
The driver of the other vehicle, Kasey Rayburn, 37, of Elm Creek, was examined by emergency medical personnel on the scene and was not transported to a hospital.
The State Patrol’s preliminary investigation indicated that alcohol was suspected as a factor in the crash.
Kampmann is scheduled for arraignment in Dawson County Court on February 21, 2019 at 9:00am.
