The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) that one person inside the other vehicle died and the other was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

About half a dozen passengers from the van were taken to local hospitals with injuries that aren’t considered to be life-threatening.

A firefighter directing traffic also sustained an injury that’s not life-threatening.

Stukenholtz says officials are working to identify everyone involved. The person who died hasn’t been identified pending notification of family members.
