Two Omahans killed in 133 accident by T. Barber

A head-on collision on Highway 133 Wednesday killed the drivers of two vehicles alone in their cars north of P30 about 1:45 p.m.

Rosemarie Akiens, 45, of Omaha and Cody Stump, 19, of Omaha were killed in the accident, said Washington County chief deputy Ben Scherer.

Washington County sheriff’s deputies and the Nebraska State Patrol investigated the crash which witnesses said occurred when a northbound blue Jeep Patriot crossed the center line and collided with a southbound red Chevy Avalanche pickup.

Akiens was driving the pickup, which flipped into the west ditch, and Stump was the driver of the Patriot, which ended part way on the east shoulder of the road.

Scherer said autopsies would be done Thursday.

The highway was closed until 5:32 p.m. as officers investigated the scene and attempted to notify relatives of the drivers.

The accident is still under investigation.
