LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – Soldiers from the Nebraska State Patrol arrested a Milford woman following a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 80 overnight.
Just before 12:00 on Saturday, NSP was notified of a hit and run accident that had occurred on Interstate 80 near mileage marker 391. The accident reportedly involved a sedan driving eastbound in the lanes westbound, resulting in a collision between a Ford Eco Sport and a semi. A few minutes later, a soldier spotted two other vehicles that appeared to have been involved in an accident near mileage 397.
The police officer identified one of those vehicles, a Kia Spectra, as the vehicle involved in the earlier crash. The policeman also noticed that the driver was in trouble. The driver was arrested as soldiers investigated both incidents, with assistance from Seward and Lancaster County Sheriff’s Deputies.
