A small car traveling north in western Nebraska veered across the center line into the path of a southbound semi tractor-trailer, killing the two people in the car.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports the driver, 72-year-old William Shanahan of Maywood, and his passenger, 64-year-old Georgia Connor of Stratton, died at the scene.
The truckdriver, Brian Els, was not injured.
According to NSP, Shanahan was driving north on Highway 83 late Tuesday morning when his car crossed the center line and struck the semi.
NSP says the investigation continues.
