Wrong-way driver dies, 2 others injured in Nebraska crash

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in Sarpy County south of Omaha say a wrong-way driver caused a head-on crash that killed him and left two others - including a child - seriously injured.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened early Saturday morning on Highway 75 when 32-year-old Juan Pablo Muro, of Lexington, was driving northbound in the southbound lanes of the highway. Officials say a police officer was on the way to the area to check on reports of a wrong-way driver when Muro's car hit a sport utility vehicle driven by a 32-year-old Bellevue woman.

The woman and her 2-year-old son, who was in the SUV, were seriously injured and remained hospitalized Saturday. Muro died at the scene.

Authorities continue to investigate.
