LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln police have identified the 30-year-old truck driver who died in a two-vehicle crash that shut down Interstate 80 for nine hours.

Authorities say Emil Galabov of Harwood Heights, Illinois, was driving in a semitrailer west on the highway when his vehicle collided with another tractor-trailer on Sunday morning.

Officer Michael Schaaf said in his crash report that Galabov was thrown from his vehicle.

Galabov was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Schaaf says the other driver, a 53-year-old man from San Diego, California, wasn’t injured in the wreck.
