A Schuyler man has died after losing control of his car on U.S. Highway 30.

The Platte County Sheriff's Office said 26-year-old Francisco Espinoza was driving westbound into Columbus on Monday morning to go to work.

Police said he lost control of his car, slid across a median and was hit by a semitrailer at 5:12 a.m. The semitrailer pushed the car through a chain-link fence before both vehicles stopped in a hayfield.

Police said that a witness to the accident says the roadway was nearly snow-covered except for wheel tracks.

Espinoza was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the semitrailer was not injured.
