SARONVILLE, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a Hastings couple has been killed and two of their children injured in a collision in Clay County.

Clay County Sheriff Jeff Franklin says the accident occurred around 5:15 a.m. Thursday. The family was headed east on U.S. Highway 6 when their sport utility vehicle was struck by semitrailer that had been going south on Nebraska Highway 14. Franklin says the truck driver didn’t halt at a stop sign.

The 53-year-old man and his 52-year-old wife died in the collision. Their teenage son and daughter in her 20s were flown to a Lincoln hospital. Their names aren’t being released until relatives are notified about the accident.

    Picture does not match story. Pretty sure Oregon State Patrol is not going to investigate Nebraska accident. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Family in the Nebraska accident.
