A Monday morning crash on I-80 near Greenwood claimed the life of a man. The Nebraska State Patrol says around 8:00 am the driver of a westbound Honda Civic lost control, crossed the median, and rolled. The driver, a man in his 20s, was ejected from the vehicle and was struck by an eastbound Jeep Grand Loredo.
Other motorists stopped and attempted to render medical aid before emergency responders arrived, but the man died at the scene. The driver of the Grand Loredo was not injured in the crash.
I-80 was closed for eastbound traffic from Waverly to Greenwood for approximately four hours. The name of the man who was killed is being withheld pending notification of family. The crash investigation is ongoing.
