A Shenandoah man suffered what were described as non-incapacitating injuries during a single-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon, in Page County. According to the Sheriff’s Department, 48-year old Timothy Allen Lekey was flown by Mercy 3 Air Ambulance to Creighton Medical Center in Omaha following the crash, which happened at around 3:55-p.m.

Officials say Lekey was traveling north on Highway 59 just south of 170th Street, or about two-miles north of Shenandoah, when his 1993 Oldsmobile Cutless drifted off the road to the east. When Lekey overcorrected, the car drifted off the road to the west, and after Lekey overcorrected again, the car entered the east ditch. It then crossed 170th Street and came rest in the east ditch, just north of 170th.

Lekey was cited for Failure to Maintain Control. His car was declared a total loss.
