KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — A trucker has died after being run over by his own rig on the side of a road west of Kearney.
The Kearney Hub reports that the accident happened Thursday evening.
Officials say the man pulled his semitrailer off U.S. Highway 30 west of Kearney onto the side of an intersecting road. The Buffalo County Sheriff's Office believes the man got out of the rig and was trying to work on it when it rolled backward over him.
He was taken to Kearney's Good Samaritan Hospital, where he died.
Officials have not yet identified the man.
