RANDOLPH, Neb. | A Nebraska teenager died in a rollover crash early Friday morning near Randolph, Neb., authorities said.
Emily Bloomquist, 16 of Randolph, lost control of her vehicle on County Road 864 half a mile southeast of Randolph, according to a release issued by the Cedar County Sheriff's Department. The vehicle rolled, ejecting Bloomquist from the vehicle. A seat belt was not in use, said the release.
Bloomquist was a student at Randolph High School. Superintendent Jeff Hoesing said Friday was a scheduled day off for students, but the school will be open for student access to a crisis team, clergy and school counselors.
The school will also be open Saturday at 8 a.m.
"Words are inadequate to express our sorrow of the loss of Emily and suffering this will cause to all who loved her," Hoesing said in a statement.
Bloomquist was pronounced dead at the scene.
