By: KLKN Newsroom

One person was flown to Bryan West with traumatic injuries after a rollover crash on I-80. It happened around 5:45 p.m. Friday, near mile marker 407. The victim, a man driving a pickup, was headed west toward Lincoln when investigators say he lost control. They say he blew a tire, causing him to hit another vehicle. The truck rolled over the median onto the shoulder of the eastbound lanes.  

All eastbound traffic was blocked from the 56th Street/405 exit for a time. Star Care was called to respond. A nurse who happened to see the crash rushed to the scene. 

Earlier reports indicated the victim was unconscious shortly after the crash, but paramedics say he was alert once they arrived. 

This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more details. We’ll also have an update on Channel 8 Eyewitness News at 10.
