HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has ruled that the city of Hastings and Adams County are not immune from a lawsuit filed by a woman whose arm was partially amputated after a car accident on a slick road.

The Hastings Tribune (http://bit.ly/1H8wErt ) reports the Nebraska Supreme Court ruled Friday that Hastings and Adams County are not immune to the lawsuit filed by Kaelynn and Wayne Kimminau in 2011. The two claim the city did not properly clean a corn mash spill from the previous day and that led to Kaelynn’s accident.

According to officials, a state patrol officer saw the spill on Nov. 15, 2009 and asked the Hastings Rural Fire Department to clean it up. Firefighters moved the corn mash onto the unpaved shoulder and ditch, and the road was reopened for travel.
