Cotesfield, NE (AP) - Central Nebraska authorities say snow and ice may have been factors in a collision that fatally injured a St. Paul man.

The Howard County sheriff's office says the accident was reported just after 6 p.m. Friday about two miles north of Cotesfield on Nebraska Highway 11.

Officials say 47-year-old Donald Kozeal was driving his van south when it was struck by a northbound semitrailer that had crossed the center line.

No injuries to the semi driver were reported. He was identified as 25-year-old Cody Stevens.

The sheriff's office says Kozeal was taken to Howard County Medical Center in St. Paul, where he died.
