A person was killed Thursday morning in a crash in southeast Lincoln involving an SUV and a semitrailer truck, Lincoln police said.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m., police said, Lincoln police officers and Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews responded to a crash near Nebraska Highway 2 and South 91st Street. Police said it appears the SUV rear-ended the semi, but it initially was unclear whether the semi was moving or stopped at the time.
