A 79-year-old Nebraska City man was killed after his SUV rear-ended a semi in southeast Lincoln on Thursday morning, a Lincoln police spokesman said.

Thomas F. Funke, the father of Nebraska Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey Funke, died at the scene. The driver of the semi was not injured, Capt. Robert Farber said.

The crash at 91st Street and Nebraska 2 occurred in the westbound lanes shortly after 9:30 a.m.

Funke was driving west on Nebraska 2 and his vehicle struck the rear of the semi, which was stopped at a traffic signal.
