LA PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a motorcyclist died after a four-vehicle accident in eastern Nebraska's Sarpy County.

The accident occurred at 4:35 p.m. Tuesday on the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 75, a few hundred yards south of U.S. Highway 34. The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says the motorcycle hit a minivan, which triggered a secondary accident between a work van and a pickup truck that were trailing the motorcycle and minivan.

The names of those involved haven't been released.
