fatal-accident(AP) — A 75-year-old driver has died after a collision near O’Neill in northern Nebraska.

The Holt County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred Wednesday afternoon, less than a mile east of O’Neill.

The office says Thomas Schneider halted at a stop sign and then turned east onto Nebraska Highway 108. But he apparently turned too wide and went into the oncoming lane. His vehicle struck a westbound vehicle driven by 52-year-old Gerald Kemp, of Niobrara.

Schneider was pronounced dead at the scene. The Sheriff’s Office says Kemp suffered no visible injuries.
