Amanda M. Wilder, 28 of Sargent, has been charged with two counts of felony child abuse in Buffalo County, and one count of felony child abuse in Custer County. The charges are the result of an accident Aug. 22 near Miller, in which the pickup truck Wilder was driving rolled and killed 11-year-old Destani Wilder and 24-year-old Rebecca Veeder of Sargent.
City crews worked to clean up a grain spill on East Highway 2, in front of Pump & Pantry in Broken Bow, Monday. The spill happened shortly after noon. The Broken Bow Police Department reports that the truck hauling the grain by-product was forced to make a sudden stop, spilling the grain. The highway was closed for about two hours, and traffic diverted around Memorial Drive, while crews cleaned up the spill.
