NSP investigating fatal Kearney County crash

SEPTEMBER 6, 2019 (GRAND ISLAND, NEB.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating a crash on Highway 6 in Kearney County that has claimed the life of a Hastings man.

At approximately 9:00 a.m. Thursday, troopers were dispatched to a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 6 about one mile east of Heartwell. A semi, driven by Luke Brown, 41, of Cozad, was traveling westbound when it struck the rear of a westbound tractor, driven by Michael Duca, 49, of Hastings.

The crash caused the tractor, which was pulling a shredder, to enter the ditch and roll. Duca was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney where he was pronounced deceased.

Brown was not injured in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
