Crash at 27th and Highway 2 snarls Lincoln traffic

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A two-vehicle crash at 27th Street and Highway 2 backed up traffic Wednesday during the lunch rush.

One vehicle ended up on the bike path, and another destroyed the crosswalk signal at the intersection.

When asked what caused the crash or what directions the cars were traveling Lincoln Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Mark Majors said, “The cause of the accident and how they ended up where they did is currently under investigation … we don’t know.”

At the time, they only knew that the collision was “T-bone” style.

The Lincoln Transportation and Utilities Department is on the scene and is cleaning up the crash.  The destroyed crosswalk signal is currently being replaced. It is expected to be complete in the next few hours.

One lane was closed for a time.  Rain, traffic and the distance between the vehicles caused a longer cleanup of the crash.

One person was extracted from their car and taken to the hospital.  The driver had injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police are currently investigating the crash to determine what happened.
