A 69-year-old co-op worker died after a semitrailer truck backed into him at a southeast Nebraska grain elevator.

The Otoe County Sheriff's office says that Roger Teten of Talmage was fatally wounded in the accident on Tuesday.

Chief Deputy Mike Holland says Teten was standing in a street to direct a truck into the grain elevator when a second truck driven by 72-year-old Dale Horstmann backed into him.

Holland says another truck driver tried to get Horstmann to stop before the accident by using his CB radio, but he was unsuccessful.

Teten died later at a Nebraska City hospital.
