A fatal crash occurred shortly before 10 p.m. on Sunday 6 miles east of the Lexington Interstate-80 interchange in Dawson County. The driver of an eastbound pickup was pulling another pickup when the 2nd pickup blew a tire. The first pickup entered the south ditch and rolled onto its top. The crash left a considerable amount of debris, but cleanup occurred without the need to close the eastbound lanes. One person was pronounced dead. The victim was identified as 52 year old Derek Sweeney of Cedar Grove, Tennessee. A spokesman for the Nebraska State Patrol says crashes on Nebraska roads and highways over the weekend claimed several lives.
