One man dead after rear-ending semi trailer

AURORA, Neb. -- A central Nebraska man is dead after a crash on I-80 earlier this week.

Hamilton County Attorney Mike Powell says the accident happened Monday evening two miles east of Aurora.

Authorities say a car driving by 52-year-old Jose Luis Malvais Sanchez rear-ended a semi trailer. He was declared dead at the scene.

Officials say the traffic had slowed in the area due to a backup caused by construction.
