A 29-year-old Lincoln man died Tuesday morning after his vehicle collided head-on with a semi-trailer on U.S. 34 in Seward County.

Beau Connely was driving a Subaru Impreza west on the highway near 210th Road at about 7:50 a.m. when he veered across the center line and collided with an eastbound semi, the Seward County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

Connely was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff's office is investigating the crash with assistance from the Nebraska State Patrol.

No citations have been issued. The sheriff's office did not identify the semi driver.

Connely's death marks the 89th fatality on Nebraska roads this year a 29% increase over the five-year average year-to-date total.
