MERNA, NEB. (AP) — Authorities say a man from Temple died after his pickup truck collided with another in central Nebraska's Custer County.

The crash occurred around 8:30 a.m. Thursday on Nebraska Highway 92, about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) west of Merna. The Nebraska State Patrol says 40-year-old Roman Romero, of Temple, Texas, was headed west when he crossed the center line and struck an oncoming pickup driven by 49-year-old Kevin Jensen, of Broken Bow.

The patrol says Romero was fatally injured. The extent of Jensen's injuries and those of his two passengers is unclear.
