The Nebraska State Patrol said the crash that happened at about 9:45 a.m., killed a family of four from Fremont. Heidi Lykens-Huisman, 37, was the driver of a southbound Pontiac Sedan that was attempting to pass another vehicle, lost control and collided head-on with a semi-truck.
Also killed were Joshua Huisman, 29, Jaymasin Lykens, 10, and nine-month-old Nova Huisman.
The driver of the semi, a 37-year-old man from Beemer, was not injured, NSP said.
