KEARNEY, Neb. -- An 8-year-old Idaho boy has died in a single-vehicle crash along Interstate 80 near Kearney.

The Kearney Hub reports the crash happened Tuesday afternoon about a mile west of Kearney when 31-year-old driver Tabitha Tesch was briefly distracted.

The Nebraska State Patrol says her sport utility vehicle then veered to the right, and when Tesch tried to straighten out she lost control. The SUV went into the median and rolled several times.

Tesch's son, T.J., was ejected and later died at a Kearney hospital.

Tabitha Tesch and four other children who were in the vehicle were taken to a hospital, where their conditions weren't available.

All those in the vehicle are from Eagle, Idaho.
