An elderly couple has died from injuries received in a traffic accident in northeast Nebraska.

The Wayne County Sheriff says the driver, 85-year-old Virlyn Lukens, and his wife, 77 year old Marvel Lukens, of Emerson, Nebraska were killed when Lukens lost control of his pickup truck on Highway 35.

Authorities say the eastbound pickup skidded on the slick highway and was struck by an eastbound SUV.

The SUV driver, 45-year-old Robbi Johnson, of Norfolk, was taken to a Norfolk hospital.

The accident occurred around 3:25 p.m. Sunday about two miles east of Hoskins.
