Authorities in western Nebraska say two Minnesota residents have died in a crash near Hay Springs.
The Nebraska State Patrol says the crash happened early Friday morning on State Highway 87, south of Hay Springs.
Investigators say a pickup truck driven by a 45-year-old Hays Springs man ran a stop sign at a highway intersection and hit a small sport utility vehicle that was traveling on the highway.
The patrol says the two people in the SUV, 22-year-old Remington Harder of Hutchinson, Minnesota, and 24-year-old Josey Tensen, of Glenwood, Minnesota, were thrown from the car and died at the scene.
The driver of the truck suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
