LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say two students on a Lincoln school bus and five people in a car were sent to a hospital after a collision.

The crash between the eastbound bus and northbound car occurred about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Officials say the north-central Lincoln intersection had no stop signs or other control devices.

All 10 students on the bus and its driver were evaluated, and two students were taken to a hospital out of what school officials say was an abundance of caution. All the injuries were considered minor.

No names have been released.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Officials have announced plans to build a flexible music venue in downtown Omaha.

Omaha Performing Arts President Joan Squires said Wednesday that it's hoped the venue's size and configuration will appeal to touring artists.

Fundraising has begun for the $109 million facility. Officials say it will be able to hold up to 3,000 patrons and have no fixed seats.

It will sit just north of the Holland Performing Arts Center. The opening is planned for 2023.
