One person was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 just west of Lincoln on Thursday, according to a news release from the Seward County Sheriff's Office.
The sheriff's office, Nebraska State Patrol and Pleasant Dale Volunteer Fire Department responded to a westbound Dodge Ram pickup pulling a camper that collided with a semi that had slowed in front of it near mile marker 384 at about noon. The driver of the pickup, Richard Schulmeister, 67, of Milan, Illinois, was killed in the accident. The driver and sole occupant of the semi, Mark Bynog Sr., 44, of Denver, Colorado, was transported to Bryan West Campus and later released.
Westbound I-80, which is currently reduced to one lane due to construction, was closed for several hours following the crash.
