JANSEN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a driver was killed in a collision between a semitrailer and a sport utility vehicle.


The crash occurred just after 5:30 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 136, about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) east of Fairbury. Station KWBE reports that witnesses say the eastbound SUV swerved into oncoming traffic and struck the truck, which was hauling several pallets of bricks on a trailer.


The SUV driver was pronounced dead at the scene. It's unclear whether the truck driver was injured.


The names of those involved haven't been released.
