A two-vehicle accident Wednesday morning on Interstate 80 west of York, Neb., left eastbound and westbound traffic stacked up.
Nebraska State Patrol emergency dispatchers said the accident occurred in the westbound lanes of I-80 about 15 miles west of York. The dispatchers had no reports of injuries or deaths.
A witness, Jason Frederick of Benkelman, Neb., said by cellphone it appeared that two pickup trucks, one of which may have been pulling a recreational vehicle, were involved in the accident.
He said both lanes of westbound I-80 were shut at about 10:30 a.m. and one lane of eastbound I-80 was closed. He said it appeared that wreckage spilled into one lane of eastbound I-80.
Frederick, who was eastbound on I-80 at the time, said westbound motorists were diverted off the interstate at the Hampton, Neb., exit.
He said some westbound motorists whose vehicles were at a standstill while authorities tended to the scene were in the interstate's median viewing the crash's cleanup.
By noon, all lanes, eastbound and westbound, of I-80 were open, authorities said.
