Two of the three men involved in a head-on collision in Banner County have been charged after authorities found that the driver and one of the passengers were in possession of methamphetamine at the time of the crash.
All four people from the two-vehicle accident were hospitalized following the Monday morning crash, but today the Nebraska State Patrol released more information regarding the investigation.
NSP Spokesman Cody Thomas says that the driver of the pickup- 62-year-old Edwards Roberts and 50-year-old passenger Michael Teter- were both found to be in possession of meth.
Roberts is charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs and Possession of Methamphetamine. Teter is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Both men remain hospitalized, but Thomas says that they have been cited on the criminal charges.
