Authorities have released the name of a Norfolk man killed when his semi truck rolled near Scribner late Tuesday.

Dodge County Attorney Oliver Glass said the victim was Gary G. Kiepke, 51.

The Nebraska State Patrol reported that Kiepke was travelling east on U.S. Highway 275, crossed the center line and entered the westbound ditch. The semi rolled, coming to rest in a grove of trees.

The accident, near County Road E, was reported shortly before 11 p.m., but because the vehicle was partially concealed by the trees, authorities are still investigating when the accident happened.

Kiepke was not wearing his safety belt.

Scribner Fire and Rescue personnel, along with the Dodge County Sheriff's Office and Nebraska State Patrol, responded to the accident, which remains under investigation.
