Crop-Duster Crashes Near York

By  | 

A crop-duster plane has crashed on the Interstate 80 overpass at York, blocking traffic north and southbound on the overpass.

Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says early reports indicate the pilot was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.

She says patrol is aiding with traffic control and has dispatched a hazardous materials team to the scene of the 9 a.m. Friday crash.

Collins says the plane reportedly had some chemical spill but it was not yet known what type or quantity was involved. Collins says the eastbound on and off ramps are closed at the interchange but I-80 traffic has not been halted.
