FREMONT, Neb. (AP) Authorities have released the names of two teenage boys who were killed in a collision between a car and semitrailer just north of Fremont.

The accident occurred just after 1 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of U.S. Highway 77 and Nebraska Highway 91.

The car driver was identified as 17-year-old Bryan Huff, of Fremont, and his passenger was identified as 15-year-old Dalan Brandt, of Hooper.         

Dodge County Sheriff Steve Hespen says the truck driven by 51-year-old Byron Morrow, of Tekamah, was headed west on Nebraska 91 before turning south onto U.S. 77. That’s when the big rig was struck by the car.


Morrow was not injured. Both boys in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.


The accident is being investigated.
