NORTH PLATTE, Neb. -- A 26-year-old Hershey man was hospitalized after a Lincoln County crash earlier this week.

On Monday just before 8:00 p.m., Lincoln County authorities received a report of a one-vehicle crash in the 3600 block of West North River Road near North Platte.

Arriving units found the driver in critical condition, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office says 26-year-old Dru Linderman was hospitalized after his truck left the roadway and hit a tree.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor, the sheriff's office said. The investigation is ongoing.
