The Nebraska State Patrol and other agencies responded to the accident. Traffic continued to flow slowly in the left lane, while cleanup of the corn mash took place. A wrecker was needed to right the semi and remove it.  Traffic was slowed into the evening at the wreck site. The accident report says the driver ran off the road to the right, came back across the westbound lanes and over-corrected. No injuries were reported.
