A mother and daughter from Hannibal, Missouri were killed in a crash on Interstate 80 west of Lincoln Friday morning.

The Seward County Sheriff's Department says a car heading westbound veered across the median into the eastbound lanes near Pleasant Dale just before 7 a.m. Friday and went down a steep embankment, killing 11-year-old Morgan Smith.

Her mother, 29-year-old Nell Jorgensen, was taken by medical helicopter to Bryan/LGH West in Lincoln where she died a short time later. A boy was hospitalized with minor injuries. His name has not been released.

They were on their way to a family reunion in Wyoming.
