Cheyenne Man Dies in Fatal I-80 Accident Near Sidney Tuesday Afternoon

The Nebraska State Patrol says a 20-year-old Cheyenne,Wyoming  man was killed in a two-vehicle accident west of Sidney Tuesday afternoon.

NSP and the Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Office were called to the scene at mile marker 48 on Interstate 80 shortly after 3 p.m. for the collision of a fuel tanker and a car.

Investigators found the car driven by Chance Seivley was westbound when it drove onto the right side rumble strips, over-corrected and crossed the median, striking the semi-tanker.

Officials say Seivley was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi, Monte Larson, 57, of Salina, Kansas, was not seriously injured.

I-80 was closed for approximately four hours during the response and investigation. Potter Volunteer Fire also responded to the scene.
