Officials say a vehicle hit and killed a mountain lion over the weekend in northwest Nebraska.

The state Game and Parks Commission says the car hit the creature Saturday on Highway 20 in Sioux County. The adult male weighed about 150 pounds and had appeared to be in good health.

The commission says the driver of the vehicle immediately contacted state officials following the incident. It is the sixth mountain lion killed by a vehicle in the Pine Ridge area since 2007.

Officials say such incidents are common for states with resident populations.
