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.
