Cass County authorities say a husband and wife from Murdock were killed in a two vehicle crash late Sunday morning. It happened on Highway 75 just north of Highway 1.
Investigators say a 1999 Ford Taurus driven by 62 year old Douglas Erhart of Murdock was southbound on Hwy 75 when he lost control due to slick road conditions. That caused his vehicle to cross the centerline and collide with a north-bound 2017 GMC Terrain Denali, driven by 66 year old Karla Manzel of Bellevue.
Erhart and his wife, 67 year old Donna Erhart were pronounced dead at the scene. Manzel and a passenger, 69 year old Elizabeth Schroeder of Mclean, Va., were transported to UNMC for non life-threatening injuries.
Seatbelts were in use at the time of the accident. The condition of the road is believed to be the primary factor in the accident.
