Semi trailer collapses near Beatrice

BEATRICE, Neb. -- A semi trailer collapsed near Beatrice Thursday.

A trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol snapped photos of the damage while responding to the scene.

The trailer was loaded heavy in the middle, which authorities say contributed to the failure.

They caution that it's not only about the amount of weight being hauled, but also the distribution of that weight.

It's not clear if the driver was cited for the accident.
