Driver Hits Stalled Car and Owner

A woman putting gas in her stalled vehicle on 40th Street was hit by a car last night near C Street. The woman, Tracy Macke, was taken to intensive care but Police Capt. Don Scheinost tells KFOR NEWS the woman's injuries are not considered life threatening. The driver, Sara Inhofe, was driving southbound on 40th Street when she saw the stalled car with its flashers on too late and swerved, hitting the woman and her car. Inhofe was cited for negligent driving and driving without a seatbelt. Lincoln Police Spokeswoman Katie Flood says it is possible that Inhofe was reaching for a cigarette before the collision.  Macke is 49 years old. C Street had to be closed while the wreakage was cleaned up, but is now open.
