Police say a distracted driver caused a wreck during rush hour traffic in Homer, Nebraska.
Traffic was reduced to one lane on Highway 77, for about an hour this afternoon, as crews cleared the two-lane highway and put a damaged SUV onto a tow truck.
Officers say the driver of a Honda Civic lost track of where he was for a moment and caused the SUV to crash.
"He looked down for a second and was distracted and realized he was on the other lane of travel and the white vehicle that you saw here made a couple moves to try to not hit the car and hit the bridge," said Mike Kreegar, with the Dakota County Sheriff's Department.
The driver of the Civic was cited for crossing over the center line on the bridge, but no other charges were filed.
The names of the two drivers were not released. Police say no one went to the hospital, and the drivers only had minor injuries.
