Authorities say a construction worker--70-year-old Wayne Hansen of Schaller--was attempting to cross a single lane of travel walking west when he was struck by a 2014 Peterbilt semi driven by 60-year-old William McBee of Dunlap, Tennessee.

Hansen was taken by Glenwood Rescue to Nebraska Medicine. The Mills County Sheriff's Office and Glenwood Fire and Rescue assisted the patrol at the scene.
