LA VISTA, Neb. — Two people have died after the car they were in was crushed by a concrete truck that tipped over onto their vehicle while turning in La Vista.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the crash was reported just after noon on Wednesday, and crews didn’t get the truck turned upright until around 1:50 p.m.

La Vista Police Chief Bob Lausten says crews at the scene could see through a sunroof that the driver and front-seat passenger had been killed. He says they had not been able to tell whether anyone was in the backseat.

Lausten says the truck driver was taken to a Papillion hospital with minor injuries. He says the truck was fully loaded at the time.
