17-year-old died after Panhandle crash, officials say


SCOTTSBLUFF — Authorities say a 17-year-old died at a hospital after crashing off a state highway in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The rollover crash was reported early Saturday morning. A deputy sent to check the report found the teenager on the ground near the vehicle just off Nebraska 71, a little more than 3 miles north of Scottsbluff. The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office says the boy was taken to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, where he died.

The sheriff’s office identified him in a news release as Daniel McDonough, who lived in Hemingford.

The release says McDonough had taken the vehicle without permission from his brother’s girlfriend. The release also says McDonough’s brother reported that Daniel McDonough didn’t have a driver’s license and didn’t know how to drive.
