An early morning crash left one man dead after the semi appeared to drift off the road way over a guard rail and came to rest in a ravine.

It happened about four miles west of Cozad on Interstate 80 at Mile Marker 218 at 5:57 a.m.

Nebraska State Patrol responded to the scene along with Cozad Volunteer Fire Department.

Officials say they had to use the jaws of life to remove Walter A. Reed, 39, of Kearney from the truck.

Nebraska State Patrol says Reed was not wearing a seat belt.
