Authorities in western Nebraska say two Minnesota residents have died in a crash Friday morning on State Highway 87, near Hay Springs.

Investigators say a pickup truck driven by a 45-year-old Hays Springs man ran a stop sign at a highway intersection and hit a small sport utility vehicle that was traveling on the highway.

The patrol says the two people in the SUV, 22-year-old Remington Harder of Hutchinson, and 24-year-old Josey Tensen, of Glenwood, were thrown from the car and died at the scene. The driver of the truck suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
