      STAPLETON, Neb. (AP) -- The Logan County sheriff's office says a 67-year-old man has died in a two-vehicle crash near Stapleton.

      Sheriff Jon Heflin said that Roger Beckett of Stapleton died in the Saturday evening crash.

      The sheriff says the accident occurred about 5 p.m. when a pickup truck crossed the center line on Highway 83 and collided with a minivan in which Beckett was a passenger.

      Beckett's wife, Barbara, was flown to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

      The pickup driver, 71-year-old Jesus Gonzalez Torres of North Platte, also was taken to a hospital with injuries.

      The sheriff's office says an investigation of the crash is continuing.
