GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says one person has died and four others have been hospitalized after a car struck a semitrailer.

Troopers say the crash happened Sunday evening on Interstate 80 near Grand Island after the car malfunctioned. Witnesses say a tire fell off of the vehicle.

The car crossed the median and struck the back of a semitrailer in the opposite lane. The truck’s back axel broke off and both vehicles rolled.

Troopers say one person from the car died. They haven’t released that person’s identity.

The other three people in the car and the semitrailer driver were taken to a Grand Island hospital.
