WEST POINT, Neb. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a two-vehicle crash in northeast Nebraska that killed an Omaha man and injured two baseball coaches from Seward.

The Cuming County Sheriff's office says 60-year-old John Bobier was killed in the Saturday afternoon crash on U.S. Highway 275.

Bobier's SUV veered into oncoming northbound traffic on the highway before colliding with the pickup truck 42-year-old Randy Rolenc was driving.

Bobier died at the scene of the accident about four miles south of West Point. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Rolenc and his passenger, 33-year-old Brock Anderson, were treated at the West Point hospital and released later. They were wearing seat belts.

Rolenc and Anderson both coach Seward's American Legion baseball team. The teams' Saturday games in Pender were cancelled.
