I-80 in West Lincoln Is Back Open Following Crash

LINCOLN–(KFOR June 29)–What appeared to be a serious collision between two semitrucks that ended up shutting down westbound Interstate 80 traffic in west Lincoln early Wednesday afternoon did not result in any loss of life or injuries.

The Nebraska State Patrol says it was just before 11 Thursday morning when the collision happened, involving a semi hauling 60 head of cattle that rear-ended a semi hauling a box of burritos. The cattle hauler left the road and rolled into the north ditch.

Both drivers were not hurt. A small number of cattle didn’t survive the crash.

Westbound traffic on I-80 reopened around 4pm Wednesday.
