A crash on Interstate 80 near mile marker 417 halted westbound traffic Sunday afternoon.

10/11 had a crew on scene and said the crash happened right by a weigh station between the Waverly and Greenwood exit at mile marker 417.

Deb Collins with the Nebraska State Patrol says the the driver was in the right lane, when he lost control of the Honda Civic. The car went off the road, and the driver then over corrected, causing the car to go back onto the road across both lanes and smash into the concrete barrier. The collision caused the car to roll.

Collins said the driver was not hurt, but the passenger in the car was flown to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

1011's crew on scene said around 5:00 p.m. traffic was not moving and was backed up for at least a half mile.

The Nebraska Department of Roads 511 website said the crash was at the Lancaster and Cass County Line.

10/11's Kristin Bauer said the Star Care helicopter left the scene shortly before 5:00 p.m.

She also added that eastbound traffic was moving slow because of the crash in the westbound lanes.
