Motorcyclist Injured in Truck Hit-and-run Accident on Highway 92 in Scottsbluff, NE

Scottsbluff, NE -- July 14, 2022, a motorcyclist was injured due to an accident where a truck crashed with them, then left the scene.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 11:00 a.m. along Highway 92 near West 20th Street.

According to officials, a motorcyclist was traveling along the highway and attempting to turn onto South Beltline when a collision somehow occurred with a tractor-trailer hauling a cattle trailer going in the same direction. After the collision, that truck reportedly left the scene.

The motorcyclist was eventually taken to a hospital with reportedly non-life-threatening injuries. Police have yet to locate the runaway truck driver. Reports mentioned another cattle truck stopping at the scene before then leaving. It's unclear if that truck is also being sought by authorities.

With a crash like this, it's important the community is as vigilant as possible. Hit-and-runs often come to a conclusion because someone in the community was able to identify a friend, neighbor, co-worker, family member, auto shop customer, or otherwise bring the driver to the attention of authorities. The same could prove true here.

In fact, the reports mentioning a second cattle truck possible at the scene makes me wonder if there is a nearby local ranch, farm, or plant that can help identify one of their workers. Moreover, the concern of a business knowing about this and not immediately coming forward is something both the victim and the community would need to know. I maintain hope that persistence will see a just resolution to all of this.
