REDINGTON, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of two people killed in a collision between a semitrailer and a sport utility vehicle near Redington in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The crash occurred about 2:40 p.m. Tuesday.

The Nebraska State Patrol identified the two as 64-year-old Bruce Evertson, of Kimball, and his passenger in the SUV, 56-year-old Robin Lapaseotes, of Bridgeport.

The truck driver was identified as 56-year-old Dennis Dobrinski, of Bridgeport. The patrol says Dobrinski was taken to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The patrol says weather likely was a factor in the collision, which closed Nebraska Highway 88 from Bridgeport to the junction of Nebraska Highway 71 for about four hours.
