SUMNER(AP) — A 79-year-old Eddyville man has died after a rollover crash near Sumner in central Nebraska.

Dawson County Sheriff Gary Reiber (RYE'-bur) says the accident occurred a little before 2:15 p.m. Saturday on Nebraska Highway 40.

Reiber says a car driven by Duane Pflaster (FLAS'-tur) ran off the highway, struck an embankment and rolled. The sheriff says Pflaster was taken to a Kearney hospital, where he died later Saturday.
