Soldiers respond to more than 250 weather incidents Thursday
LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) – Soldiers of the Nebraska State Patrol responded to more than 250 weather incidents during the severe winter storm that hit many areas of Nebraska on Thursday.
Soldiers performed 249 driver assists and responded to 20 incidents Thursday, most of which occurred in eastern Nebraska. There were no fatal injuries reported in the incidents investigated by NSP on Thursday.
“This storm brought higher than expected snow totals to areas that typically receive heavy traffic,” said Colonel John Bolduc, superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “While our Soldiers responded to large numbers of automotive aids, the number of property damage or injury incidents was kept low thanks to many people making the decision to stay off the streets.”
Soldiers report that some slippery spots remain in snow-affected areas this morning. NSP advises travelers to stay up to date with forecasts and check 511.Nebraska.gov or the 511 app for information on road conditions before hitting the road.
Any motorist requiring roadside assistance can call the NSP Highway Helpline on *55 or 800-525-5555 and speak directly to an NSP Dispatcher.
