Authorities have released the name of a man who died when he apparently jumped from a pickup during a chase with officers in southeast Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol on Wednesday identified the man as 19-year-old Justin Kanniard, of Pawnee City and Steinauer.
Kanniard died late Monday near Humboldt after leading officers on a chase in Richardson and Pawnee counties.
The patrol says a preliminary investigation shows the pickup left the road and went into a soybean field after the front tires were flattened by stop sticks deployed by officers.
Officials say the driver had a rope around his neck that was attached to the vehicle, and he apparently jumped out of the truck while it was moving. An autopsy is pending.
