Authorities are investigating a fatal crash on I-80 in Lincoln.

The crash happened around 10:45 a.m. Friday near mile marker 395.

The Nebraska State Patrol said a maintenance crew found a car in the south ditch, just off the eastbound exit ramp. Troopers found the lone occupant of the vehicle, identified as 35-year-old Johan Lopez, of Lincoln, dead.

NSP said Lopez may have been deceased for some time.

Further investigation has revealed that Lopez had been reported as a missing person by his family in Thornton, Colorado earlier this week, after he didn’t report to his job in Lincoln, the patrol said.

The investigation is ongoing to determine when the crash took place.
