SARGENT, Neb. (AP) -- Authorities in central Nebraska say an Elyria woman was fatally injured when her horse rolled over her.

According to Ord radio station KNLV, Wendy O'Neel was rounding up cattle west of Sargent on Saturday afternoon when her horse stumbled, throwing her to the ground and rolling on top of her.

O'Neel was flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. Authorities say she died Monday afternoon after she was taken off life support.

A Custer County dispatcher said Tuesday that she couldn't provide more information on O'Neel or the accident.
