KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A 71-year-old Gibbon man has died following a two-vehicle crash Monday night east of Kearney.
The Nebraska State Patrol says Kermit Keller was driving his pickup eastbound on U.S. Highway 30 around 6 p.m. Monday when he slammed into the back of a semitrailer that had slowed to turn.
Keller was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, where he died. Investigators say Keller was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
An autopsy has been ordered.
The 63-year-old driver of the semi was not injured.
The crash closed a stretch of the highway for about two hours.
