GOTHENBURG, Neb. (AP) - Bad weather has been cited in a fatal collision on a rural state highway in central Nebraska.

Lexington radio station KRVN says (https://bit.ly/1pbmTdB ) the accident occurred around 1 p.m. Tuesday, about six miles north of the Dawson-Custer county line on Nebraska Highway 47.

Custer County Sheriff Dan Osmond says 57-year-old Glenn Smith died after his pickup collided with a sport utility vehicle driven by William Warren. Smith lived in Gothenburg.

Osmond said Wednesday that Warren, of Arnold, was taken to a hospital for treatment of facial cuts and other minor injuries.

Osmond says driving on the highway was hazardous because a winter storm had made the roadway slick and the visibility poor.
