One person dead after 4-vehicle collision on Interstate 80 between Omaha and Lincoln

A 54-year-old man died Thursday morning following a collision on Interstate 80 between Omaha and Lincoln.

Patrick Cunningham of South Bend was riding his motorcycle on I-80 near Ashland about 6:40 a.m. when a semitrailer truck attempted to pass him and struck another westbound semitrailer truck, pushing it into a van. The first semitrailer truck overcorrected and struck Cunningham, according to a press release from the Nebraska State Patrol.

Cunningham was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported by anyone involved.

The crash remains under investigation, the State Patrol said.

I-80 was closed in the area for westbound traffic for about six hours.
