A 30-year-old Nebraska truck driver has been killed in a head-on collision on Interstate 80 near Beaver Crossing.
The Nebraska State Patrol has released the identification of the driver: Mitchell Quandt of Yutan.
NSP reports Quandt was traveling east on I-80 when his semi tractor-trailer hauling cars rear-ended a sport utility vehicle, which was traveling only 50 miles per hour with hazards on, due to a spare tire. The semi crossed the median and hit a westbound semi head-on. Quandt died at the scene. The driver of the other semi, 53-year-old Rodney Wilkerson of Glenvil, is being treated at York General Hospital for what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV was not hurt.
