A Grand Island man was killed and two others were injured in an accident on Interstate 80 near Elm Creek Saturday afternoon.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the driver of an eastbound pickup pulling a trailer took evasive action after another pickup pulling a trailer tried to change lanes just before 5:30 p.m. The truck and trailer ended up in the median after rolling over. Three people apparently not wearing seat belts were ejected from the vehicle and one, 29-year-old Juan Carols Rivas, died.

The Nebraska State Patrol is looking for the other pickup involved. Witnesses described it as a red Dodge pulling a stock-type trailer.
