JUNE 5, 2019 (GRAND ISLAND, NEB.) — At approximately 12:10 a.m. Wednesday, June 5,
troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) observed a southbound, orange Kawasaki
motorcycle traveling at 80 miles per hour on South Locust Street in Grand Island. That area is a
50 miles per hour zone. Troopers attempted a traffic stop, but the motorcycle fled.
A pursuit was initiated as the motorcycle fled at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, making
multiple turns and eventually traveling northbound on Highway 281. Moments later, the
motorcycle was involved in a crash with another vehicle at the intersection of Highway 281 and
West Old Potash Highway. The entire pursuit lasted approximately five minutes.
The motorcycle rider, a 27 year-old male, was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Grand Island
where he was pronounced deceased. The driver of the other vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat, was
not injured.
NSP has requested that the Grand Island Police Department conduct an investigation.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A last-minute push to pass a property tax package has stalled in the Nebraska Legislature, dimming the prospects of any major changes this year.

Supporters fell 10 votes short Wednesday of the support necessary to overcome a filibuster. The vote was 23-7 to force an end to legislative debate. Sixteen senators abstained from voting.

The vote could threaten the prospects of another measure to create new tax incentives for businesses, a major priority for Nebraska business leaders. Several rural lawmakers reluctantly supported that bill on a first-round vote, with the understanding that senators would pass a property tax package.

The new package would have eliminated sales tax exemptions for haircuts, pop, candy, car repairs and other goods and services and used the revenue to reduce property taxes.

The records say Hedlund had sex with the 16-year-old girl several times at his Hastings home and that he gave her alcohol there and bought alcoholic beverages for her and three of her friends.
