Texas man killed, wife injured in Nebraska collision

AUBURN, Neb.  —  Authorities say a Texas man has been killed in a collision with a semitrailer in southeast Nebraska. The crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 75 about 51/2 miles north of Auburn. The Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office says a southbound sport utility vehicle pulling a camper trailer crossed the center line and struck a northbound semitrailer that was hauling a skid loader.  The SUV driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The Sheriff’s Office identified him as 72-year-old Lester Meciej, who lived in Round Rock, Texas. His wife, 70-year-old Jeanne Maciej, and the truck driver, 52-year-old Bryant Olson, of Springfield, Missouri, were taken to an Auburn hospital for treatment of what the Sheriff’s Office says were non-life-threatening injuries.
