MAXWELL, Neb. (AP) _ A child has been fatally injured in the collision of two semitrailers on Interstate 80 in western Nebraska.

The accident occurred around 6:45 p.m. Sunday, two miles east of Maxwell. The Nebraska State Patrol says an eastbound truck driven by 40-year-old Serget Kalinovskaya, of Meridian, Idaho, ran into the back of the other truck, which was being driven by 59-year-old Rana Singh, of Chino, California.         The patrol says 8-year-old Victoria Kalinovskaya was riding with her father and was ejected. She and her father were taken to a North Platte hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. Her father was treated for minor injuries. Singh was not injured.
