The Audi crossed over the centerline before being overcorrected back across both lanes of travel and off the north edge of roadway where the vehicle came into collision with a series of trees.

Two of the three occupants were ejected from the Audi during the collision and the third occupant remained in the vehicle. The third occupant, an 18-year-old Lincoln man called 9-1-1 after the collision asking for help but was unable to give an exact location.
