Two men have died in separate accidents along highways in western Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a 63-year-old Gordon man died Monday morning after his eastbound pickup rolled on U.S. Highway 20 about six miles east of Gordon. The patrol says driver Thomas Wiles overcorrected after his truck crossed the center line. It went off the road and rolled several times, ejecting Wiles.

The second accident occurred a little before 8 p.m. Monday along Nebraska Highway 62A, about a mile west of U.S. Highway 385 in Morrill County. The patrol says an eastbound pickup went out of control and rolled, ending up in a roadside ditch and ejecting its driver. The driver was identified as 43-year-old Leonard Garcia, of Scottsbluff.
