4 killed in crash on eastern Nebraska highway


SCRIBNER, Neb. (AP) — Four people — including two children — died in a crash on an eastern Nebraska highway, state authorities said.
The crash happened around 9:45 a.m on U.S. Highway 275 just east of Scribner when a passenger vehicle and semitrailer collided, according to a news release from the Nebraska State Patrol.
Investigators said two adults and a child in the smaller vehicle died at the scene of the crash. Another child in the vehicle was rushed to a hospital in Fremont, but died shortly after arriving, the patrol said.
Officials were working to identify all of the victims and their relationships to one another and could not give their names and ages by early afternoon.
The patrol did not immediately say how the crash occurred or whether the semi driver suffered any injuries.
Scribner is about 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) northwest of Omaha.
