An elderly couple is dead following an accident Sunday afternoon in snowy and icy conditions.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred around 3:25 p.m. Sunday about two miles east of Hoskins on Nebraska Highway 35.
The office says an eastbound pickup driven by 85-year-old Virlyn Lukens, of Emerson, went out of control on the slick roadway and was struck by an eastbound sport utility vehicle. Lukens and his wife, 77-year-old Marvel Lukens, were killed.
The SUV driver was taken to a Norfolk hospital for treatment.
