Authorities say Kansas man killed in Nebraska collision

TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a Kansas man has been killed in a southeast Nebraska collision.

Nebraska City radio station KNCY reports that the accident occurred Sunday evening near Tecumseh, about a half-mile north of the intersection of Nebraska Highway 50 and U.S. Highway 136.

Deputy County Attorney Benjamin Beethe of Johnson County says it appears so far that a northbound car crossed the Highway 50 median and rammed into a southbound pickup, killing the car driver. He was identified as 77-year-old Gary Barton, of Haddam, Kansas.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says the pickup driver, Clark Gartner, of Tecumseh, was not injured.
