Central States News: Nebraska Teen Killed in Head-on Crash With Her Sister

Seventeen-year-old Gabby Matthes was said to be on her way to sing at her high school's Spring Concert in Adams Nebraska Monday evening.

Adams is about 20 miles south of Lincoln.

Ms. Matthes was a talented artist and singer- slated to graduate in weeks at Freeman High school according to the story in the BEATRICE (NE) SUN.

Gabby was eastbound in her 2008 Pontiac G6 on Birch Road- not far from her parent's house- about 6:30 p.m. Monday and cresting a hill when she met- head-on- a 2003 Chevy pickup truck.

The Chevy was being driven by Gabby's 15-year-old sister Megan.

The crash of the 2 vehicles pinned Gabby in her Pontiac with mortal injuries- as she was freed from the wreckage by a rescue squad and flown to a Lincoln hospital by a medical helicopter.

Megan and a friend who was riding with her- 16-year-old Katlyn Beu of Adams- were also flown to a Lincoln hospital with lesser life-threatening injuries. 

CSW offers our condolences to the Matthes family- Gabby's friend- and prayers for Megan and her friend Katlyn for a complete recovery.
