The Howard County Sheriff's Office says Derek Holt from St. Paul died Sunday night after his vehicle was hit by another automobile traveling in the opposite direction.
The wreck occurred on Nebraska Highway 92, about two miles west of St. Paul. Holt was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The other driver was 29-year-old Justin Arrowsmith of Omaha. He was taken to one hospital and then transferred to another.
Authorities say it appears Arrowsmith's vehicle may have crossed the center line. Both drivers were alone and wearing their seat belts.
