Kearney, NE (AP) - Authorities say a 9-year-old boy has died after vehicles collided at a Kearney intersection.
Police say the accident occurred around 5:15 p.m. Monday, when vehicles headed south and east crashed into each other. There are no traffic lights or stop signs at the intersection, but police say drivers are expected to yield to each other.

The boy was identified as Jackson Wallace, of Kearney. Police say he was in the front seat of a car driven by his baby sitter, Rebecca Konate. She was taken to a hospital. It's unclear whether the other driver was injured.

The collision is being investigated. No citations have been reported.
