Truck Accident Snarls Traffic on Highway 275

NORFOLK - A two-truck accident just west of Wisner is snarling traffic on Highway 275, and motorists are encouraged to consider an alternate route until at least noon. Those traveling eastbound are urged to turn south on Highway 15 headed to Pilger and then take Highway 32 to West Point. Those headed west should turn onto Highway 32 west at West Point and travel on Highway 15 through Pilger back to Highway 275. A spokesman for the Nebraska State Patrol says one truck was slowed to turn and was rear ended by another truck. One of the trucks is loaded with apples, which need to be offloaded by hand. Construction in the area is further complicating the movement of traffic through the accident site.
