SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in western Nebraska have identified a man killed in a crash earlier this week when he lost control of his truck on an icy road.

Steven Hergenrader, 69, of Mitchell, died in a crash Tuesday morning just northwest of Scottsbluff as wintery weather slicked area roads, the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Investigators said Hergenrader was on a highway overpass west of Scottsbluff and was passing another vehicle when his pickup truck slid on the ice, went down an embankment and rolled.

Hergenrader was thrown from the truck and died at the scene, authorities said.
