SUTHERLAND, Neb. (AP) - A 34-year-old woman has died from injuries she sustained in a single-vehicle crash in western Nebraska.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/Va0Lbj ) that Janel Godfrey, of Sutherland, was driving on the eastern edge of the city Friday evening when she crashed into a tree.

Lincoln County Sheriff Cpl. Merit Newman says witnesses told officials that Godfrey was traveling at a high rate of speed. Witnesses say Godfrey’s 1993 Toyota Camry went airborne as it crossed some railroad tracks and landed in a residential yard, where it struck the tree.

Godrey, who was alone in the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital. She was pronounced dead around 10:40 p.m. Friday.

Newman says speed and alcohol were factors in the accident.
