SCRIBNER, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 51-year-old Norfolk man has died in the crash of a semi trailer he was driving near Scribner in eastern Nebraska.

The Fremont Tribune reports the Nebraska State Patrol says the accident was reported a little before 11 p.m. Tuesday and occurred along U.S. Highway 275.

The patrol says Gary Kiepke was driving east when his truck crossed the center line, ran into the ditch on the north side of the roadway, rolled and came to rest in some trees.

The patrol says Kiepke wasn't using his seat restraints.

The crash is being investigated.
