1 killed in 29 vehicle pileup caused by Nebraska dust storm

Forecasters say that there could be similar dust storms in Nebraska today.

One person was killed and fifteen others injured in a multi-vehicle crash triggered by a dust storm in Nebraska yesterday afternoon.

The crash happened at about 5:15 p.m. on I-80 just west of York, Nebraska.

As high winds kicked up dust and created nearly zero-visibility conditions, 29 vehicles were involved in a chain reaction collision.

One person died in the crash. Fifteen others were injured and transported to the hospital.

The pileup shut down a two mile stretch of I-80 from Exit 332 to Exit 330. All lanes of I-80 were reopened by approximately 8 p.m.

Police are still investigating the crash.

Forecasters predict similar high winds in Nebraska today and warn that another zero-visibility dust storm could be in the works.
