(Neb.)-Air Force Recovers Ammo, I-80 Reopened
BUSHNELL, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska has reopened a stretch of Interstate 80 in western Nebraska that had been closed so the Air Force could search for some missing ammunition.
A news release sent Thursday by the 90th Missile Wing public affairs at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming says a small amount of ammo had been lost from the rear of a Humvee. The vehicle was being used by a security team traveling in a western Nebraska missile field.
The release says the ammunition has been accounted for, as have other items. The Air Force says the ammo posed no danger to people or other vehicles in the area.
The Nebraska State Patrol says lanes in both directions were reopened by 11:15 a.m. Thursday.
