Ogallala teen killed in I-80 wreckTell North Platte what you think

A young man from Ogallala was killed Tuesday afternoon when his pickup ran into a semi-trailer on I-80 about four miles west of North Platte.

According to a report from the Nebraska State Patrol, Timothy Dovel, 18, was alone driving an eastbound pickup that crossed the median and hit a westbound semi-trailer.

The collision knocked the trailer off its tandem axle, according to the accident report.

The wreck occurred at 2:34 p.m. Both westbound lanes of I-80 were closed soon after until the wreckage was cleaned up about 4 p.m., a state patrol spokesperson said.

The semi-truck was from Florida. The driver was uninjured.

It is not known what caused Dovel's pickup to cross the median, the spokesperson said.
