ELKHART COUNTY A Nebraska man was killed Tuesday night in a crash on the Toll Road near Bristol.

Shawn W. Young, 44, of Aurora, died after crashing into the rear of a semi. It happened in the westbound lanes after 10 p.m., about a mile west of the Bristol exit, near the 100 mile marker.

The driver of the semi, Jakltongir Zakurlaev, 34, from Ohio, was stopped in traffic at the time. A truck fire earlier in the night had caused a backup. A witness to the crash said Young, driving a Corvette, never slowed down before crashing into the semi’s rear end. The impact wedged the car under the semi.

Traffic was diverted from the Toll Road at the 100 mile marker while crews cleaned up the crash.
