Local reports indicated that 21-year-old Kandace L. Broussard of Lincoln, NE, was driving a 2015 GMC Terrain in the left lane. At the same time, 41-year-old Joshua B. Burkholder of Hays was headed north in a 2016 Ford Fusion in the right lane. Burkholder made a lane change to avoid slowing traffic and crashed into the rear of the GMC.
