Authorities blocked three of four lanes on westbound Interstate 480 in downtown Omaha on Wednesday afternoon following a two-vehicle traffic accident that left two male drivers in serious condition and debris scattered across the closed lanes.
The accident occurred about 12:30 p.m. The two men suffered head injuries.
The Nebraska Humane Society also was called to the scene to tend to a large dog that was in one of the cars.
A half-hour after the crash, two of the three closed lanes on westbound I-480 near 24th Street had been reopened by authorities.
