Lindsay Krause Car Accident – Nebraska volleyball’s outside hitter, Lindsay Krause, was sidelined for Sunday’s game against Kentucky due to an upper-body injury sustained in a hit-and-run car accident. According to Nebraska coach John Cook, the incident occurred when Krause, a junior hailing from Papillion, was rear-ended on O Street in Lincoln during broad daylight on a Wednesday. The responsible driver fled the scene, leaving Krause injured.
Throughout the week, Krause was unable to participate in practice, managing only about 10 minutes of drills on Sunday. Thankfully, it is anticipated that her absence from the team will not be prolonged. Expressing his frustration, Cook voiced his concerns on Sunday night, urging city officials to address the issue of reckless driving on O Street. He recounted his own experiences with hazardous drivers on the same road and shared the details of the incident that befell Krause near Chick-fil-A.
Krause has been a valuable contributor to the team, amassing 48 kills this season with an average of 2.18 kills per set. Nebraska’s next match, the start of Big Ten play against Ohio State, is scheduled for Friday at 8 p.m. and will take place at the Devaney Sports Center. The incident underscores the need for road safety in Lincoln.
