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.
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.
