BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska authorities say the woman killed in a second accident after her car struck a deer has been identified as a Colorado resident.

Gage County authorities identified the woman as 59-year-old Bonnie Goings, of Colorado Springs. The accident was reported around 6: 45 a.m. Sunday on U.S. Highway 136, about six miles east of Beatrice.

The Sheriff’s Office says Goings was driving east when her vehicle struck the deer. The release says Goings had left her vehicle but was standing near it when it was struck by a westbound car. The impact knocked Goings’ vehicle into a roadside ditch, trapping her beneath it.

Goings was pronounced dead at the scene. Five people traveling with her were treated at a hospital. The other driver was not injured.
