Icy conditions led to two fatal accidents in Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports a 30-year-old trucker lost control on Interstate 80 during the snow Sunday morning. His truck collided with another semi tractor-trailer on the interstate. That accident as well as numerous others snarled traffic through northern Lincoln Sunday morning from Northwest 48th Street to the Waverly interchange.
The driver, who is from Illinois, has not been identified. The driver of the second truck was not injured, according to the Lincoln Police Department.
Snowy, icy conditions created slick roads throughout eastern Nebraska Sunday morning and through much of the state. Visibility was poor for those traveling.
Authorities closed U.S. 6 west of Lincoln and U.S. 34 east of the city for much of Sunday after high winds blew deep drifts across the roadways. The Nebraska Department of Roads reports closures and blockages on both U.S. 34 and U.S. 136 on Monday.
Slick conditions led to a second fatal accident in Saunders County. A collision on Nebraska 92 near Wahoo took the life of Kathleen Schulzkump, a passenger in one of two cars that collided. The two drivers are both being treated at Saunders County Medical Center.
The storm dumped as much as eight inches of snow on parts of eastern Nebraska.
