MILFORD, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a pickup truck driver died after the truck ran into the back of a semitrailer on Interstate 80 in eastern Nebraska.

The collision occurred around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) east of the Milford exit. The Seward County Sheriff's Office says the pickup rammed the semi after the semi slowed for one-lane traffic due to construction.

The names of those involved haven't been released.
