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 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.
