GRETNA, Neb. (AP) -- Authorities say an Iowa man died after his car collided with another in eastern Nebraska's Sarpy County.

The collision occurred a little before 5:30 p.m. Friday on U.S. Highway 6 on the south side of Gretna. The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says an eastbound car driven by 46-year-old Brian Bullington crossed the center line and struck an oncoming car being driven by 28-year-old Elizabeth Beckenhauer, of Ashland.

Beckenhauer was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The sheriff's office says Bullington was flown to Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, where he later died. He lived in Red Oak, Iowa.
