Seward, NE (AP) - A city of Seward streets maintenance worker has died after being injured on the job.

Authorities say 36-year-old Jeramie Schoepf died Friday in a Lincoln hospital. Authorities say Schoepf was working on an expansion of the city's bike trail Feb. 28 when a tree limb fell on him. Schoepf had been a city employee since 2002.

Seward school district superintendent Greg Barnes says Schoepf helped coach the wrestling team for 11 years at Seward High. Schoepf graduated from the school in 1996.
