Hoskins, NE (AP) - An elderly couple have died after a collision on a snowy spring day in northeast Nebraska.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred around 3:25 p.m. Sunday about two miles east of Hoskins on Nebraska Highway 35.

The office says an eastbound pickup driven by 85-year-old Virlyn Lukens, of Emerson, went out of control on the slick roadway and was struck by an eastbound sport utility vehicle. Lukens and his wife, 77-year-old Marvel Lukens, were killed.

The SUV driver was identified as 45-year-old Robbi Johnson, of Norfolk. Johnson was taken to a Norfolk hospital.
