Nebraska Woman Dies In Aurora After Pickup-Train Collision

Woman's Husband In Serious Condition After Collision In Neb. Panhandle

An Alliance woman has died in a Colorado hospital after she and her husband were injured in a collision with a train in Nebraska's Panhandle.

A hospital spokeswoman said 78-year-old Lois Behm died Sunday night at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora.

The Nebraska State Patrol said Behm and her 82-year-old husband, Don Behm, were crossing double tracks on a rural road seven miles east of Alliance at about 10 a.m. Saturday morning when their pickup was struck by the eastbound train.

The patrol said Don Behm was driving north and had seen a parked train that apparently obscured his view of the train that struck his pickup. There is a stop sign but no crossing arms at that crossing.

Don Behm is listed in serious condition at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.
