A 43-year-old rural Louisville woman who suffered burns Sunday in a suspected mobile meth lab explosion was released from a Lincoln hospital on Tuesday, authorities said.
A medical helicopter flew the woman to CHI Health St. Elizabeth Sunday night after her daughter found her with burns on her face, neck and arms, said Cass County Sheriff’s Capt. Dave Lamprecht.
The woman ran into her home east of Louisville after a fire started in her car, Lamprecht said.
Investigators found a bottle with tubing coming from it in the passenger seat that they suspect was used to make meth, Lamprecht said.
The Nebraska State Patrol dismantled the lab.
Deputies think the injured woman was the only person in the car.
A criminal investigation into the incident is ongoing.
