Semi-trailer crash on I-80 kills two truckers

A fiery crash on Interstate 80 near Lincoln yesterday claims two lives.

State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says a semi-truck hit a guardrail, went down an embankment, landed upright on the on-ramp and caught fire.

Collins says the semi was being driven by a man and woman from Ohio, both of whom were killed.

She says officials with the trucking company, which is based in Tennessee, says the semi was hauling dry goods.

The victims’ names weren’t released.
