Authorities identify man killed in I-80 crash near Milford
Authorities have identified the victim of a fatal crash on Interstate 80.
The Seward County Sheriff's Office responded to the accident near mile marker 384, about two miles east of the Milford exit around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Officials said the preliminary investigation shows that a pickup truck pulling a camper was traveling westbound on I-80 when it failed to yield to a semi-truck slowing in front of it. Traffic was slowed down to one lane due to a construction zone. The drivers were the sole occupants of both vehicles.
SCSO identified the driver of the pickup as Richard Schulmeister, 67, of Milan, Illinois. The other drive was treated at a nearby hospital and released.
