COZAD, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say two Iowa men died after two trucks crashed into each other this weekend.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 80 near Cozad.

Authorities say a semi-trailer truck tried to exit at a rest area, but couldn’t navigate the off ramp. So that truck merged back into traffic at a slow speed.

The State Patrol says another truck driven by 25-year-old Adrian Carrillo rear ended the semi as it re-entered the interstate.

Carrillo and his passenger, 48-year-old Roberto Garcia-Gonzales, both died in the crash. They were both from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The driver of the semi, 34-year-old Al-Jabba Hopkins of Wendell, North Carolina, and his passenger were not seriously hurt.
