Lyman man dies in rollover crash
LYMAN – On Nov. 10 at about 1:25 p.m., the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Department along with the Lyman Fire Department, Valley Ambulance and Air Link and the Nebraska State Patrol responded to a report of a single-vehicle accident.
Once they arrived, they found Russell Surratt Jr., 32, of Lyman inside a Ford F-150 pickup truck that had rolled several times and landed on its top in a ditch.
Lyman firefighters were able to extricate him from the vehicle and Air Link transported Surratt to Regional West Hospital, where he died a short time later.
Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman said in a news release the man’s family initially contacted deputies at about 12:45 p.m. Thursday, requesting assistance, saying the man suffered from mental problems and was possibly armed with a shotgun or crossbow.
While deputies were responding, family members reported the man had fired several shots outside a residence. A short time later, he left in his Ford F-150 pickup and a family member followed. Deputies requested assistance from the Nebraska State Patrol.
At about 1:25 p.m., officials received a report of a single-vehicle crash.
At the scene near County Road 5 and County Road R was a rural mail carrier and the family member who had followed the man.
The mail carrier told officers he encountered the pickup at the crest of a hill, driving in the middle of the road at a high speed. The truck swerved and crashed.
After cresting the hill, the carrier turned back around and after seeing that the driver had crashed, the carrier called 911.
Survivors include Surratt’s parents, Russell and Yvonne Surratt of Lyman; paternal grandparents, Melvin and Nadine Surratt of Lyman; maternal grandmother, Mathilda Hill of Lyman; aunts and uncles, Debbie (Glen) Stubby of Lyman, Randy Surratt of Lyman, Diane (Steve) Bolek of Lyman, Aldoris (Tim) Wahe of Gillette, WY, Donna (Aldo) Gonzalez of Scottsbluff, Rosanne (Dennis) Liggett of Morrill, Patty (Chuck) Seier of Greeley, Colo., Randy (Denise) Hill of Torrington and Mark (Janell) Hill of Laramie, WY
