 Posted By: Channel 8 Newsroom

East and westbound lanes are reopened, following an accident on the 70th and Cornhusker Highway overpass. 

Police say one person is dead and four were taken to two local hospitals with non life-threatening injuries. A witness told police a driver may have suffered a medical episode, rear ended another car and crossed over the center line, hitting a car head on. 

The entire bridge in that area is closed off to traffic.

We’ll have more details tonight at 10.
