No one was injured after a pickup struck a semi on Interstate 80 on Monday morning.
According to Nebraska State Patrol Sergeant Bob Veal, the pickup truck was traveling westbound on I-80. Just after 8 a.m., one of the truck's front tires blew, causing the driver to overcorrect and collide with the back of a semi-truck trailer the driver was passing.
The pickup rolled, landing on the passenger side in the median near mile marker 191, just past the Maxwell exit.
The Nebraska State Patrol and Maxwell Fire and Rescue were called to the scene. Veal said there were no injuries. Seat belts were in use and the pickup's airbags deployed.
"Had he not be wearing a seat belt, we would be going to the hospital," Veal said.
The semi sustained some damage to the rear tires but was able to drive away from the scene. The pickup sustained heavy front end damage and was totaled, Veal said.
