KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Chicago man has died after the van he was driving rammed into a semitrailer parked at a highway rest area in south-central Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the accident was reported about 8:15 a.m. Sunday at the eastbound Interstate 80 rest area around four miles west of Kearney. The patrol says the van struck the rear of the semitrailer. The truck driver was sleeping in the tractor cab and apparently wasn't injured.

The patrol says the van driver died at the scene. He was identified as 27-year-old Maurice Lewis. Two passengers in the van were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. They were identified as 22-year-old Charles Stokes, of Ferguson, Missouri, and 48-year-old Willie Sheppard, of Phoenix.
