Young Nebraska Man Killed in Accident on I-80
The Nebraska State Patrol reports that 21-year-old Timothy Tucker of Lincoln died Sunday morning after he rolled his 1996 Ford Ranger on Interstate 80 near the Greenwood Exit between Lincoln and Omaha.
According to Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins, Tucker was driving east when his pickup left the road, struck an embankment and rolled into a ditch. The truck landed on its roof and Tucker was thrown from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at around 8:00am.
Collins added that Tucker was not wearing a seatbelt, and alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
