EMERSON, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities say a Pender man has died in a highway accident involving three vehicles.

The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred a little before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday on Nebraska Highway 35 about a mile northeast of Emerson.

The Sheriff’s Office says an eastbound vehicle sideswiped a westbound van and then spun out of control when it hit water running over the roadway and struck another westbound vehicle.

The eastbound vehicle’s driver was killed.

The Sheriff’s Office identified him as 21-year-old Michael Schmidt, who lived in Pender.

One of the other drivers was hospitalized and the third driver was not injured.
