WACO, Neb. (AP) - The driver of a semitrailer truck died Sunday after losing control of the truck on Interstate 80.

Eastbound lanes of the interstate were shut down for several hours Sunday after the fiery crash.

Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says the truck caught fire after it crashed into a ditch just east of the Waco exit around 4 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities did not immediately release the name of the truck driver.
