Four killed after head-on vehicle crash with semi-truck in Nebraska

Four people were killed following a head-on vehicle crash on Thursday.

A mom, dad, and child were declared dead at the scene after their southbound Pontiac sedan was trying to pass another vehicle, lost control, and hit the semi-truck.

Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) later revealed the identities of the victims as a family from Fremont: Heidi Lykens-Huisman, 37, was driving; Joshua Huisman, 29, 10-year-old boy Jaymasin Lykens and 9-month-old girl Nova Huisman were passengers in the car.

The crash took place at about 9:45 a.m. on Highway 75 near the west edge of Scribner, in Nebraska.

The baby was taken by Scribner Rescue to the hospital in Fremont. Baby succumbed to injuries.

Scribner Police officers said their initial investigation showed that a car with several passengers may have attempted to pass another vehicle on the two-lane highway when it hit the truck. NSP added that inappropriate passing likely led to the vehicle crash.

The driver of the semi, a 37-year-old man from Beemer, was not injured.
