LEWELLEN, Neb. (KNOP) - Authorities say a passenger was fatally injured when the pickup truck he was in crashed in the Nebraska Panhandle. The crash occurred around 1:10 a.m. Saturday, about 2 miles south of Lewellen in Garden County. The Nebraska State Patrol says the pickup was headed west on a county road when it ran off the roadway into a ditch and rolled, ejecting the passenger.

He's been identified as 48-year-old David Schwartz. He lived in Lewellen. The pickup driver has been identified as 40-year-old Molly Raymer, of Milliken, Colorado. It's unclear whether she was injured.

A patrol representative didn't immediately return a message Tuesday from The Associated Press.
