PIERCE, Neb. (AP) - Two people in a car that ran a stop sign have died in a collision with a semitrailer in northeast Nebraska.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Wednesday that the accident occurred a little before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, about a mile west of Osmond.

The release says the car driven by 88-year-old Darleen Wallin didn’t halt at the Bloomfield Road intersection with U.S. Highway 20 and collided with the semi.

The Sheriff’s Office says Wallin and her husband, 93-year-old Lloyd Wallin, were killed. They lived in Newman Grove. The truck driver, Jeffrey Petersen, of Oakland, was taken to a hospital.
