By Staff | Aug 12, 2016

A car stolen in Nebraska ended up being involved in an accident in Faribault County that killed the driver.

The accident happened at 5:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9, according to a report from the Minnesota State Highway Patrol.

A 1968 Chevrolet Camaro, driven by Tanner L. Goodrich, 26, of Delavan, was westbound on Highway 109 near 460th Avenue.

The vehicle left the roadway, hit a driveway, and rolled several times, according to the report.

Goodrich was pronounced dead at the scene.

Faribault County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy Scott Adams says the 1968 Camaro had been stolen from a restoration shop in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Friday, Aug. 5.

Adams says the Camaro had recently undergone a complete restoration and was valued at $80,000.

Adams adds that the Faribault County Sheriff’s Office is cooperating with the Lancaster County, Nebraska, Sheriff’s Office in the investigation of the case.

Adams says part of the investigation that is still ongoing is to find out whether Goodrich is the person who actually stole the Camaro in Nebraska. That has not been determined at this time.
