Patrol: Nebraska man killed in head-on crash in Kansas

HOLTON, Kan. (AP) — A man from Omaha, Nebraska, died in a head-on crash involving a car and a semitrailer in northeastern Kansas, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. Thursday on U.S. 75 north of Holton, television station KAKE reported.

A northbound car driven by Mohammad Alnosif, 24, of Omaha, veered into the southbound lanes and hit a tractor-trailer head-on, the patrol said. Alnosif was thrown from the car and died at the scene, according to investigators.

The patrol said the 38-year-old semi driver and a 66-year-old passenger with him were hospitalized for injuries.
