COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) — A Schuyler man has died after losing control of his car on U.S. Highway 30.
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office said Francisco Espinoza, 26, was driving west into Columbus on Monday morning to go to work. He lost control of his car, slid across a median and was hit by a semitrailer truck at 5:12 a.m. The truck pushed the car through a chain-link fence before both vehicles stopped in a hayfield.
Espinoza died at the scene of the crash. The truck driver was not injured.
