BENNETT, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in southeastern Nebraska are investigating a fiery crash into a bridge pillar that killed a Lincoln man.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened just before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday on state Highway 2 near Bennett.

Investigators say a car driven by 26-year-old Thomas Neeley veered off the highway into the grass medium and struck a Highway 43 bridge pillar. The car caught fire, and bystanders were able to pull Neeley from the wreckage, but he died at the scene.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
