Five people were killed when the driver of a pickup bumped into the car in front of it, lost control and struck an oncoming pickup.

The names, ages and genders of the five people killed Sunday were not immediately released. The relationship between the five people had not been determined, State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said Sunday evening.

The five were in one black Ford F150 pickup, according to the Nebraska State Patrol. The pickup was westbound on Interstate 80 shortly before 3 p.m. when it bumped into the car in front of it.

The driver of the pickup lost control of the vehicle, which crossed the median and struck an eastbound Dodge pickup as freezing drizzle coated the area.

At least one other person in the Ford pickup was injured, as well as two people in the Dodge pickup. No injuries were reported in the vehicle that the Ford pickup bumped into.
