KENESAW, Neb. (AP) -- Authorities say a driver died after his pickup truck went out of control on an icy highway in south-central Nebraska's Adams County.

The crash occurred around 1:15 p.m. Sunday on U.S. Highway 6/Highway 34 south of Kenesaw.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office says the pickup was headed west when the driver lost control of it and it rolled into a ditch, ejecting him. He's been identified as 19-year-old David Hasse, who lived in Minden.

The sheriff's office says speed and the icy roadway contributed to the crash.
