Truck plows through gate, injures Dept. of Roads employee


Last week a 30-year-old California man in a semi truck crashed through a “Road Closed” sign and gate at the off ramp at the Sidney rest stop off of Interstate 80, causing damage to a department of roads vehicle as well as causing the gate to hit an employee.

Demyan Lavor was headed east on the interstate and failed to see the “Road Closed” sign on the off ramp. He caused $3,000 in damage to the department of roads vehicle and $2,000 in damage to his own truck.

The employee sustained minor injuries, according to a Nebraska State Patrol press release.
