Albion Woman Dies in Collision with Semi


GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) -- Authorities say a 61-year-old car driver was fatally injured in a collision with a semitrailer in south-central Nebraska.

The woman was identified as Gloria Carlson, of Albion.

The accident occurred a little after 1 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 30 in Grand Island.

Grand Island Police Sgt. Stan Steele says Carlson was driving west before slowing to turn south at Stuhr Road. Steele says Carlson's car was struck by the eastbound big rig driven by Phillip Guell, who wasn't injured.

Carlson was taken to St. Francis Medical Center and pronounced dead there.

Steele says investigators say Carlson apparently failed to yield to the oncoming truck.
