HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Hastings Police say a traffic light flashing four ways at a Hastings intersection played a role in a 2-vehicle accident.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of North Shore Drive and Highway 281.

Hastings Police said a Dodge Ram pickup traveling eastbound collided with a Chevy Silverado.

HPD Corporal John Adams said the stop light was not functioning properly, with one flashing red and the other flashing yellow. He said it appears the eastbound driver stopped, then failed to yield due to the light and collided with the other driver.

No citations were issued and corporal Adams said it doesn’t appear anyone was injured.

HPD estimates about $2,500 to $3,000 in damages to each of the vehicles.

We’re working to learn more on the issues with the traffic lights at that intersection.
