A Nevada truck driver has been killed in a crash with another semitrailer on U-S Interstate 80 in eastern Nebraska.
The victim has been identified as 62-year-old Klemet Utilla of
Sparks. Authorities say he was driving a Freightliner semitrailer
west on I-80 near York when he rear-ended another semitrailer at
about 6:30 Sunday night.
York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff says the semitrailers somehow
hooked together, crossed the median and came to a stop in the
eastbound lanes. Utilla died at the scene.
The other semitrailer was driven by an Alabama man, who was
treated at York General Hospital and released.
