A Nebraska state trooper was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after his car was rear-ended on Interstate 80 Friday night.

The crash occurred at about 10:30 p.m. near mile marker 399. The trooper had finished responding to another crash and was driving westbound when his cruiser was struck, according to a state patrol press release.

The vehicle behind him lost control and collided with the trooper's bumper, pushing his cruiser into a concrete barrier and totaling it.

The trooper has since been treated and released from Bryan West Campus. The other driver was not seriously injured, but was issued a citation from the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.

The state patrol urged all drivers to use caution while on the roads due to the recent snowfall in southeast Nebraska.
