Authorities have released the names of two drivers who died in a fiery crash involving three semitrailers in central Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 25-year-old Strahinja Krupnikovic, of Harwood Heights, Ill., and 35-year-old Thomas House, of Fremont, died in Tuesday's collision on US. Highway 30 near Silver Creek.

The patrol says Krupnikovic's westbound truck crossed the centerline and clipped an eastbound semi. Krupnikovic's truck then hit another eastbound semi driven by House head-on. Both trucks burst into flames.

The driver of the first eastbound truck wasn't hurt.

The accident closed the highway for about 12 hours.
