RICHLAND, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a car driver has been killed in a Colfax County collision with a sport utility vehicle.

The crash occurred around 6 a.m. Thursday, about three miles east of Richland on U.S. Highway 30. The Colfax County attorney’s office says a mechanical problem caused the eastbound SUV to go out of control, cross into oncoming traffic and hit the car head-on.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/2ekcQIR ) that the car driver was pronounced dead at the scene and a passenger was taken to a hospital. The SUV driver also was hospitalized.

Authorities haven’t released the names of those involved.
