LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - At least two people died on snowy roads in Nebraska on Sunday, and authorities are urging people not to drive unless necessary.

On Interstate 80 in Lincoln, a 30-year-old truck driver from Illinois died after his semitrailer collided with another semitrailer truck around 8:15 a.m.

Lincoln Police Capt. Danny Reitan says the driver who wasn’t identified died at a Lincoln hospital.

Saunders County officials say a 62-year-old woman was killed in a head-on collision that also injured three people around noon Sunday. That crash happened on Highway 92 between Wahoo and Yutan.

By Sunday afternoon, the Iowa Department of Transportation was recommending that people stay off the roads if possible because of snow and ice on the roads. Travel was especially dangerous in eastern Iowa.
