Authorities say a Yutan police officer reported that the man’s car was speeding through town when he tried to pull the car over. Authorities say the man briefly stopped, but when the officer told him to shut off his engine, the man sped off.
The patrol says the man was speeding eastbound on Highway 92 toward Omaha when he slammed into the back of a semitrailer.
The driver was taken to an Omaha hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Officials have not yet released his name.
