Patrol says 2 killed in collision on icy Nebraska highway

KIMBALL, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities say two Kimball residents have been killed in a western Nebraska collision on an icy state highway.
The crash occurred on Nebraska Highway 71 around 4:45 p.m. Monday in Kimball County, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north of the Colorado state line.

The Nebraska State Patrol said Tuesday that a sport utility vehicle driven by 30-year-old Frankie Back went out of control in the high winds and crossed the center line, colliding with an oncoming semitrailer.

A patrol dispatcher says Back and her passenger, 33-year-old Joshua Hack, were killed. The truck driver was identified as 31-year-old Abraham Lamas-Cuevas, from Mexico. The patrol says he wasn’t injured.
