WEST POINT, Nebraska — An Omaha couple have been killed in a rollover crash off a state highway in eastern Nebraska.

Cuming County Sheriff Bradley Boyum says the crash site and crumpled vehicle were found Monday morning about two miles south of West Point, just off U.S. Highway 275. The victims were identified as 40-year-old Yvonne Pivonka and her husband, 41-year-old Franklin Pivonka. Their bodies were found in a heavily wooded area.

Deputies believe the accident occurred sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, as the Pivonkas were heading home from a concert.

Relatives say the Pivonkas had seven children ranging in age from 3 to 20.
