LA PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a motorcyclist died after a four-vehicle accident in eastern Nebraska's Sarpy County.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday on the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 75, a few hundred yards south of U.S. Highway 34, killing 47-year-old Jody Emmert, of Bellevue. The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says the motorcycle hit a minivan, which triggered a secondary accident between a work van and a pickup truck that were trailing the motorcycle and minivan.

The sheriff's office says Emmert died at the scene. The driver and passengers in the pickup were taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The work van and minivan drivers were taken to a hospital as precautions.
