OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say a Minnesota man driving a semitrailer has died in rollover crash that also seriously injured his wife.

Police say 66-year-old Danny Ryan, of Hayfield, Minnesota, was driving the truck eastbound on Interstate 80 in Omaha around 6 a.m. when the truck swerved, overcorrected and rolled into a ravine, landing on its roof.

Police say Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife, 61-year-old Debra Ryan, who was a passenger in the truck, suffered two broken legs. Police say it took nearly two hours for rescuers to extract the woman from the mangled cab of the truck.
