Authorities say a Missouri man died after his minivan rammed a garbage truck in northeast Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the accident occurred a little before 10 a.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 20, about a half-mile west of Jackson.

The patrol says the minivan crossed the center line and clipped a semitrailer before striking the garbage truck.

The minivan driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as 46-year-old Rex Dodd, of Bethel, Mo.

Officials say the garbage truck driver, 41-year-old Troy Lane, of Sioux City, Iowa, was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City. He's been released.

The semitrailer driver wasn't injured.
