STANTON, Neb. -- A Monday afternoon accident on Highway 275 in northeast Nebraska created traffic issues for nearly seven hours.

Just before 3:00 p.m. Monday, authorities were notified of a one-vehicle accident on Highway 275, just west of Pilger.

According to Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger, the crash partially blocked the westbound lane. He said the roadway was covered with debris after axles of a semi-trailer broke loose and disintegrated. Unger said the axle damage caused a mobile home that was being transported to tilt precariously off the broken trailer.

The westbound lane was closed for several hours as the sheriff's office, Stanton County Emergency Management, the Nebraska Department of Transportation and Pilger Fire and Rescue worked to direct traffic around the scene.

A special wrecker crew was summoned from the Fremont area and worked to stabilize the load and repair the axles before the trailer could be safely moved.

The highway was officially cleared before 10:00 p.m. According to Unger, the trailer caused damage to the roadway that will be addressed by the Nebraska Department of Transportation. Damage to the trailer is estimated to be "in the thousands of dollars," according to Unger.

No injuries were reported.
