Ogallala couple killed in rolloverTell North Platte what you think

A man and woman from Ogallala were both killed Sunday afternoon when their car rolled over on a county road south of Lake McConaughy.

Russell E. Nowak, 63 and Jonie Irene Aldrich-Jones, 56, were ejected from their vehicle, the Nebraska State Patrol said. Both are from Ogallala.

Investigators were not immediately sure who was driving.

Their pickup apparently strayed onto the shoulder of the gravel road and the driver overcorrected. The pickup rolled several times down an embankment. Both victims were found dead near the pickup, according to the accident report.

The wreck was reported about 4:50 p.m. Central Time on Road West M, seven miles north of Brule. A passerby found the wreckage and reported it.

The road is about a mile south of mile marker 132 on Nebraska Highway 26, according to a state patrol spokesperson.

The accident is still under investigation. The Keith County Attorney has ordered autopsies.
