Sheridan man arrested for role in fatal crash


A Sheridan man faces charges after a car accident in western Nebraska killed a woman and injured another.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 45-year-old Edward Hood was arrested after the Saturday afternoon crash. Authorities say Hood's vehicle crossed the center line of U.S. Highway 26 and struck another vehicle about five miles west of Oshkosh, Neb.

The driver of the other vehicle, 62-year-old Terry Hofer of Ogallala, Neb. died. Her passenger, 62-year-old Claudia Weinbender of Dix, Neb. was hospitalized in Scottsbluff with life-threatening injuries.

Hood is suspected of driving under the influence and is also accused of failing to appear for a court hearing in Florida on a similar charge.
