A California man died Sunday in an accident on Interstate 80 in Cheyenne County.
Kenneth Berry, 47, of Pomona, was driving a semi trailer west on the interstate about 9:45 a.m. when he crossed the median and eastbound lanes of traffic, then went into the ditch and across a county road before coming to a stop in a field, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
The Cheyenne County Attorney's office said he was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at a Scottsbluff hospital. The accident happened about 6 miles east of Sidney.
The truck did not hit other vehicles or anything else, the patrol said. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
