Driver Killed in Fiery Collision in Holt County

Posted: Updated:

O'NEILL, Neb. (AP) — A driver has died, burned beyond recognition, after his vehicle rammed into a semitrailer in northern Nebraska.

The collision occurred about 10 a.m. Wednesday around six miles west of O'Neill. Holt County Attorney Thomas Herzog says the man's westbound vehicle crossed the center line of U.S. Highway 20 and struck the eastbound big rig.

The subsequent fire also melted the vehicle's identification numbers.

Herzog says the semitrailer driver was hospitalized.

The accident is being investigated.
