Nebraska man dies in rural road accident


BEATRICE, Neb. (AP)  A 53-year-old southeast Nebraska man is dead after losing control of his pickup truck on a gravel road.

Authorities reports that Danny Thieman died Friday evening in western Jefferson County. Thieman lived in neighboring Thayer County.

Authorities say Thieman lost control of his truck after he overcorrected on the gravel road. The truck went into the south ditch and flipped over when it hit the side of the ditch.

The roof of the truck was crushed, and Thieman died at the scene.

Authorities say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Thieman was not wearing his seat belt.
