One person is dead and another person was injured following a two-vehicle accident late Monday morning.
Ed Carlin, a battalion chief for the Grand Island Fire Department, said that about 11:15 a.m. Monday crews were dispatched to Highways 34 and 281 to a two-vehicle accident involving a semi and a pickup.
Carlin said the driver of the semi was pronounced dead at the scene, while one person from the pickup was transported to CHI Health St. Francis with non-life-threatening injuries.
There were only two vehicles involved in the accident, he said, but other vehicles may have sustained minor damage as a result of a “chain reaction.” A hazardous materials truck was on scene as the semi tanker was carrying fertilizer and tipped over.
The Nebraska State Patrol also was on scene doing an accident reconstruction.
This is a developing story.
