The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said a 62-year-old man from Hastings died in a rollover accident near Hershey.

It happened just after 4 p.m. Saturday.

The North Platte 911 Center received a call of a vehicle rollover accident at mile marker 164 on Interstate 80, just east of the Hershey interchange.

Deputies and first responders arrived on scene. The sheriff's office said Randy McCoy was ejected from his vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene.

Accident Investigators determined McCoy was traveling westbound on Interstate 80 and left the road on right. The vehicle entered the north ditch, struck a drainage culvert and rolled numerous times. The vehicle came to rest on South River Road (just north of Interstate 80).

McCoy was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. Marijuana was suspected as a contributing factor in the accident.
